There are agencies that Genie could be referred to for her issues to be well addressed. A good example in her case is the state department for human services, which is mandated to deal with child protection and family services. An issue that the agency would address with regard to Genie’s situation would be the trauma that impeded her linguistic development. The second type of agency that Genie could be referred to in order to obtain assistance is the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child (UNICEF). The organization would ensure the protection of her rights as a child, provide for her education and use its experts to analyze her case and provide solutions. Also, UNICEF would work with the US government to provide Genie with safety and protection. Undoubtedly, Genie’s referral to organizations such as UNICEF and the state department for child protection would guarantee her full rehabilitation.
Other agencies that would work to assist Genie as a child would be World Vision (WV) and International Bureau for Children’s Rights (IBCR). Because WV addresses various issues related to children’s health, education, and protection, Genie would be assured of receiving full assistance from the agency. A problem such as an inability to use language coherently would be mitigated. On its part, IBCR would focus primarily on ensuring that justice is served to the perpetrators of abuses against Genie. The mother, Irene Wiley, would be sued for failing to report the husband despite knowing about the abuses Genie underwent. The agencies would therefore work either to provide protection for Genie or to help to reinvigorate her skills in learning the language.
