Little Kids Learning Languages

This project aims to better understand the input young children receive in Warlpiri and  Arrernte families in Central Australia. We take a repertoire approach, asking 'what kinds of input do the young children hear spoken to them and therefore learn?' In this talk I will touch on several perspectives in the project. The findings will be helpful to educators and health professionals working with families with young children.
