Understanding communication problems in maltreated children
Berry Street’s Take Two program collaborated on the Small Talk research study which explored speech and language issues for children who had experienced abuse or neglect. The Small Talk research report, literature review and poster are now available for free download or to purchase here.
Berry Street was first established on the lands of the Wurundjeri people of the Kulin Nation. We pay our respect to their Elders, past and present, and to all the traditional custodians of land throughout Australia.
