This guide is for schools, early childhood services and health and community services that want to work towards strengthening their support of Aboriginal children’s social and emotional wellbeing. It is designed to be used during a Professional Learning session following discussion around the animations and completion of the Self-Reflection Tool. The action chart has been designed for services to input specific, immediate actions they can take to begin working towards increasing their knowledge of Aboriginal children’s social and emotional wellbeing. Examples of actions are included in the chart to help your service begin.
