Summary of Allegations:
On 06/19/18, the Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office received a report alleging that the mother does not properly supervise
the child and there are concerns that she will wander off and get hurt.

SOURCES/PEOPLE INTERVIEWED, COLLATERALS and OBSERVATIONS:


Shakayla Denson - mother/AP
Jehyrah Daniels - child victim
- maternal aunt
- neighbor
- neighbor

Maltreatment:
The mother and child live together and the mother is a single parent. The child is more likely to wander
off because she doesn't understand the consequences of her behavior. There are no documented incidents where the child
got out of the home and the mother does have a security system installed in the home that will alert her if the doors or
windows open. The mother denied that there have been any issues with the child getting away from the home and the
neighbors have never seen any supervision issues at the home.

Nature of Maltreatment:
The child resides with the mother, whose home is appropriate and free of any hazards. The home is equipped with a security
system. The child appears to be well cared for and free of any marks or bruises.

CPI Kramer spoke to the child victim Je'hyrah. She is non-verbal and she was not able to be interviewed.
She was playing in the house during the visit and appeared to be happy, healthy and active. She was bonded with the mother
and appeared to listen to basic commands. She would follow the mother and CPI around the home.

CPI Kramer spoke to the mother/AP Shakayla. She is shocked that a report was called in. She has never had to deal with
CPS before. She is a great parent but does report that it is difficult to be a single parent of a special needs child. The child
was diagnosed about a year and a half ago and it has really changed their lives. The child does not really speak
and she can throw bad tantrums. She always supervises the child and the time she walked off from the grandmother's house,
she was supposed to be watched by the MGM and MGGM. She denied that the child has gotten out of her home but she is
very pre-occupied with water and always wants to jump in no matter where they are. She does not sleep all day and she
makes sure to set the alarm and usually has the child sleep in her room at night in order to keep an eye on her. She does
sometimes get some of her family to help watch the child but it is limited. She is fearful about having other people watch the
child because they may not be able to deal with her behavior. She is very involved with the child and wants the very best for
her. She is working on getting her into a school called FACE. The child is currently enrolled at James ES. She would also like
the child to get some additional ABA therapy or services. The child was getting services but then the
school started speech therapy with her. She denied that there is anything wrong with her that would prevent her from being
able to care for the child. She denied that she is too immature to care for the child.

CPI Kramer contacted . She is the mother's sister and does sometimes help out with watching the child. She
has no concerns for the mother taking care of the child and the child appears to be well cared for and happy. The child does
like to try to walk off to the park and is very active but the mother is on top of things. She is not aware of there being any
supervision issues with the mother watching the child. The mother is very hands on with the child. She trusts the mother
enough to leave her own children with her to watch and there have not been any issues with her watching her children.

a flight risk and does require supervision. The mother does receive a lot of family support for the child and has gotten the child
into a specialized school (FACE) and linked with CARD. She also receives speech therapy during the school year. The family
is trying to get the child monitored with Safety Net but can't afford it unless they qualify for the grant program. The mother
denied the need for any additional services.

are going well with the family and the mother's sister does help out with

her. The child is now linked with CARD, who is working with the child on her
communication. They provided her with a book, where the child can point to pictures of
things that she wants or wants to say. The child is making a lot of progress. The child was

time.
