From October, we will be inviting mothers and children to visit us at The Royal Children’s Hospital to take part in interviews about their oldest child’s mental health, cognitive development, and language skills.

10-year follow-up commenced in September 2013. All women in the study are invited to complete a questionnaire around the time that their oldest child turns 10.

Any mothers who still have a questionnaire to return - there is still time to return your questionnaire. We would love to hear from you - every bit of information is helpful. If you have any questions, email us at or call (03) 9936 6707.
