A supervised visitation program is a structured arrangement that allows parents or guardians to visit with their child in a supervised environment. This type of program is usually implemented when there are concerns for the child’s safety or well-being during visitation.
Supervised visitation programs are typically ordered by a court or other legal authority, and are designed to provide a safe and secure environment for the child and parent to interact. The visits are supervised by trained professionals who are responsible for monitoring the interactions and ensuring that they are appropriate.
During supervised visits, the child and parent may engage in activities such as playing games, reading books, or simply talking. The supervisor may also facilitate conversation and offer guidance as needed to ensure that the visit is positive and beneficial for the child.
DRC’s supervised visitation programs take place in dedicated visitation centers at our offices in Middletown and Monticello, NY.
