PCANY AFFIRMS COMMITMENT TO BUILDING PUBLIC UNDERSTANDING ON ISSUES OF CHILD ABUSE
PCANY affirms our commitment to building public understanding on issues of child abuse.
The Federal Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act (CAPTA) (42 U.S.C.A. §5106g), as amended by the CAPTA Reauthorization Act of 2010, defines child abuse and neglect as, at minimum:
This definition of child abuse and neglect refers specifically to parents and other caregivers. A "child" under this definition generally means a person who is younger than age 18 or who is not an emancipated minor.
Educators who are responsibly teaching approved curriculum are not engaging in child abuse. We stand with teachers and against the implication or suggestion that by educating children they are somehow abusing them. That is a misrepresentation of child abuse and this critical issue.
An average 65,000 children are actually abused or neglected in our State every year and there is much work being done to prevent and mitigate that abuse.
Our work often focuses on addressing childhood trauma, including the injustices that have happened over generations. We consider systemic racism to be an adverse childhood experience (ACE) that colors and possibly clouds a child's life into adulthood. Last week, PCANY signed on to PowHer's vision statement regarding gender and racial equity. We strongly believe that we have an obligation to protect all children and families from racially-based bias, prejudice, and institutionalized discrimination. We will continue to support policies and practices—in schools and elsewhere—that lift up the voices of the marginalized and respond appropriately to their concerns.
We urge people to understand what true child abuse/neglect looks like and to reach out to families who might be struggling.
A key resource of the ProActive Caring Digital Resource Center (PCDRC) is the manual for the ProActive Caring Caregiver Support Program*, a program teaching mindfulness to support family members of persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities. While the self-paced manual, created by Dr. Mindy Scirri and Theresa Drum, may be used alone and is designed for home use, two new digital resources are now available to expand its functionality.
The first is a series of eight videos corresponding to the modules in the manual for the ProActive Caring Caregiver Support Program. The videos were recorded by Dr. Scirri, with creative music compilations by her daughter, Alana J. Scirri, and video editing/production assistance by her son, Nico V. Scirri. The videos may be used either in conjunction with the digital manual or as a teach-alone platform supplemented by the manual. Either way, they will be useful to family members interested in learning strategies for reducing stress in their lives. They could also be used for virtual in-service training.
The second resource added to the PCDRC is a copy of the manual for the ProActive Caring Caregiver Support Program in Spanish. The manual was translated by Fiona Rattray, Parent Training and Information Center Specialist from Putnam Independent Living Services. Rattray has served as a facilitator for in-person ProActive Caring caregiver support programs, and also as a member of one of the Program’s Regional Advisory Councils.
ProActive Caring was created as a partnership between the Center on Aging and Disability Policy at Mount Saint Mary College, community service providers, and family caregivers, to support you as you care for a person with special needs. The project is funded by the New York State Developmental Disabilities Planning Council.

The website is designed for multiple audiences, including youth with disabilities pursuing employment, as well as the people and organizations that support them.
We would also like to acknowledge the following people and organizations who helped provide insight, guidance, and content for Your Dream, Your Team.
"What we need to do is learn to respect and embrace our differences until our differences don’t make a difference in how we are treated." - Yolanda King
One important aspect of being an ally is to be self-aware, and intentional with our language. Microaggressions are comments that are indirect or subtle but reflect our implicit biases or prejudices. Offensive comments can make individuals feel invisible, and dismiss their personal experiences - such as identifying as a member of the LGBTQ+ community or any other historically disadvantaged group. They can leave a long-lasting negative impact on a person’s self-esteem, can harm relationships, and may lead to individuals feeling unsafe or targeted within their environment, such as a community or school. PBS Learning Media has created lessons for the classroom.
Promoting Culture in the Classroom
To truly engage students and be perceived by them as an ally, educators must reach out in ways that are culturally and linguistically responsive, and examine the assumptions and stereotypes we bring into the classroom that may hinder connectedness. This article titled, Culture in the Classroom, provides resources for educators to self-reflect and identify hidden biases. It also provides insight about how to take a close look at the curriculum and incorporate lessons that include diverse reading selections representing authors from various cultural backgrounds.
Educators who approach teaching from a multicultural lens can help children develop social awareness, including empathy, and make them feel included in the school community. For immigrant and refugee students, it can provide the emotional scaffolding necessary to cross the linguistic and cultural divide between the country of origin and country of residency. Embracing cultural diversity in the classroom supports the mental health and wellness of students and fosters a caring school community.
Forming a Gay Straight Alliance (GSA) Club
Student-run GSA clubs in middle schools and high schools unite LGBTQ+ and allied youth to support issues impacting them in their schools and communities. They raise awareness and promote social change. Even if your school does not have the capacity for a formal club, other clubs, such as Student Council or Key Club, may find the resources at the GSA Network helpful to developing projects that support LGBTQ+ youth such as hosting socials or raising awareness about how to support peers navigate the coming out process. Visit the GSA Network to learn more.
Special Education Allyship in Action
In this article from Teach for America, Special Education teachers share how they practice allyship in the classroom providing students with the skills to find their voice and self-advocate. They also promote goal setting, and career exploration, to empower students to fulfill their hopes and dreams.
To promote allyship in schools, consider Best Buddies Friendship Programs.
Being an Ally to Muslim American Families
EmbraceRace.org created guides that offer practical guidance to families on difficult topics such as racism, inequity, and safety.
One particular resource, created by Mommying While Muslim podcast creators, Zaiba Hasan and Uzma Jafri, focuses on practical strategies to address concerns such as school bullying.
Family Acceptance Project
The Family Acceptance Project is the first comprehensive study of LGBTQ youth and their families and the first evidence-informed family support model to help diverse families learn to support their LGBTQ children. The project represents a diverse group of families, and explores the role of family acceptance and rejection, and discusses how the level of connectedness can impact overall mental health and wellness. When youth feel supported on their journey, they harvest more positive views of the future, higher self-esteem, and a sense of inclusion.
The School Mental Health Resource and Training Center is a project of the Mental Health Association in New York State, Inc. with funding from the New York State Legislature and Executive.
Perhaps now more than ever, our students are facing new mental health challenges. As schools throughout the country are feeling the pressures of planning for the return to school and providing virtual support, it is also a crucial time to assess how well your school district is meeting students’ mental health needs. We’re here to help!
The NYS Office of Mental Health, Division of Integrated Community Services for Children and Families, invites school districts and schools across the State to participate in an assessment that will measure the comprehensiveness of your district or school mental health system and identify priority areas for improvement. We will lead you through the process and provide data entry support.
What is SHAPE? The School Health Assessment and Performance Evaluation System is a public-access, web-based platform that offers schools, districts, and states a workspace and targeted resources to support school mental health quality improvement. SHAPE was developed by the National Center for School Mental Health (NCSMH), in partnership with the field, to increase the quality and sustainability of comprehensive school mental health systems.
Needs Assessment & Resources Mapping
Mental Health Screening
Mental Health Promotion (Tier 1)
Early Intervention and Treatment (Tiers 2 & 3)
Funding and Sustainability
What’s in it for YOU? Upon completing the assessment, the school or district receives a personalized report of each domain and its components. Mastery, Progressing, and Emerging scores are calculated to quickly highlight areas of potential planning and action. The NCSMH has a large resource library available to assist in making improvements in all the domains.
Why NOW? School personnel, students, and families have been faced with an unprecedented event in 2020. Districts are planning how to reopen schools. SHAPE provides one more tool to assess a school or district’s needs.
How do we get started? The NYS Office of Mental Health has staff resources this summer to assist schools/districts with the completion and data entry of SHAPE. The information gained from conducting these assessments will provide a better understanding of what school districts need to achieve a comprehensive school mental health system, and how the Office of Mental Health might be of assistance.

During this difficult time, we are all facing challenges that seem daunting and that we may feel unprepared for. But there are people that rely on us--in some cases, both our children and our parents are looking to us for assurance, support, and guidance during these uncertain times. In addition, we need to take care of ourselves, so that we can be there for them. But no one ever told us how to do that! How do we know the right answers?
At Prevent Child Abuse, we are not claiming to have all of the answers, but we are happy to use our collective resources to provide you with the NYS Resource Guide for Caregivers: Caring for Your Family During the COVID-19 Crisis.
This Resource Guide is intended to help navigate life with children through the pandemic and the days that follow. It is rooted in the Five Protective Factors. The Five Protective Factors serve to mitigate the negative impacts of trauma. This Guide is organized by each of the Factors and gives you tips and concrete resources (links) to information you can use when YOU have questions.
We hope that you will use this guide to help you get through this difficult and unprecedented challenge and that we will all be better for it on the other side.
Wishing your loved ones safety and wellness.
Timothy Hathaway, Executive Director
During this COVID-19 public health crisis, we wanted to share with you an informational form created by Michelle Ballan, Ph.D., Professor, School of Social Welfare & Family, Population and Preventive Medicine Stony Brook University to collect and summarize vital information about an individual that can be provided to the care team in the hospital.
This form was developed in conjunction with Emergency Room (ER) and hospital physicians, individuals with Intellectual and/or Developmental Disabilities (I/DD), and parent advocates. It is designed to be an informational support tool for individuals with I/DD who may need to go to the ER or be hospitalized due to symptoms of COVID-19. Please keep the following important information in mind:
ProActive Caring Program
As we are all navigating these present times - there are tools, resources, and supports that can be helpful. We have sent this message out to the individuals, families, community-based agencies, and social media sites that are involved in our statewide ProActive Caring Program funded by the NYS Developmental Disabilities Planning Council (NYS DDPC). The ProActive Caring Program provides Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR) strategies and training to individuals, families, and staff.
In times of stress - internal or external - staying in the moment with a focus on one breath at a time - can be calming and reassuring. We ask that you take a glimpse at the information we have shared with you (https://www.msmc.edu/proactive) about the “ProActive Caring Program” and Mindfulness-Based Stress Reduction (MBSR), with the intent on: “staying in the moment." https://www.proactivecaring.org/mindful-minutes
Stress is a learned response and it can be unlearned. By using simple but powerful techniques of breathing and imagery, all things are manageable. We know it works - and so will you!
Be Safe....Be Calm....Be Kind....Be Stress-free
Also, here is the link to a Zoom-Cast that we created this week. The title is: “Pro-Active Caring - School Exchange”. This format will be created on a weekly basis on Wednesday at 10 am - the future video formats will run for 15 minutes and then open for questions, thoughts, and exchanges.
The intent is to immediately be available for Parents, Families, and Staff - to provide resources, presence, and support.
Please feel free to share this link throughout your networks. Also, please feel free to contact us at 845-569-3164.
Be safe. Thanks.

NY State Updates on Coronavirus and Operation of Federal Nutrition Assistance Programs
Hunger Solutions New York is following the development of emergency plans for the continued operation of federal nutrition programs as New York communities work to slow the spread of COVID-19.
NYS Education Department Guidance: "Operating Child Nutrition Programs when Schools are Closed due to COVID-19" encourages schools to prepare now to be able to continue to provide “critical support services” like school meals in the event of a school closure. Highlights include:
We encourage any school with questions to please contact your Child Nutrition Program Representative directly, or email CNCOVID@nysed.gov if you have additional questions or concerns.
On March 12th, OTDA issued a notice on COVID-19 to social service districts.
Districts are reminded that telephone interviews at both application and recertification are permissible for all SNAP households and are encouraged to utilize or implement this process. For SNAP cases due for recertification, districts also have the option to extend the certification period up to the maximum allowable certification period of 12 or 24 months, or up to 48 months for NYSNIP cases.
