National Children's Vision Screening Project Literature Review(PDF 474 KB)
The National Children's Vision Screening Project has been funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health and Ageing to inform future policy by determining the effectiveness of vision screening for children aged from birth to 16 years in Australia.
This literature review was commissioned to evaluate screening programs designed to detect vision conditions such as diminished visual acuity, amblyopia, strabismus or squint, refractive error, cataracts and glaucoma.
Under the Government's Stronger Families and Communities Strategy, $10 million was committed to the Parenting Information Project to explore the evidence base on parenting.

The Early Years: Refocusing Community-based Services: A Literature Review
Academic Version(PDF 434 KB)
Plain English version(PDF 322 KB)
The rationale for this project is based on the research and practice evidence that suggests the lack of coordination of relevant services at a local level make it difficult for families. To provide optimal, safe and nurturing environments that young children need to establish a favourable developmental trajectory that leads to good outcomes, families require integrated support.
During the very successful Phase One of this project, a comprehensive literature review was undertaken. This literature review has been published in both academic and plain English versions.
