About this book


This book describes the findings of a five-year journey of inquiry of medical and social scientists. Of particular interest and emphasis are issues of gender, poverty, Aboriginal status, and cultural factors that frame the lives of "typical" and "non-typical" young children and their families in urban, rural and remote communities.
