Abstract or Description

The Researcher Resource and Researcher Toolkit have been developed to support researchers to include young children in research; particularly children aged 5-8 years of age. While it has been designed to support those who are seeking to include young children in research for the first time we hope that the broad range of methods described will also be of value for more seasoned researchers. It does this by providing a six-step process for designing research and through systematically identifying and describing a range of methods that have been used with young children in diverse contexts around the world.
