The Children's Court Case History Files were created for all children who were assessed by the Children's Court Clinic. Most of the children seen were on remand at Royal Park Depot, later known as Turana, awaiting a court appearance.
The Children's Court Clinic made assessments of children brought before the court, to make recommendations about their future care and education.
The files represent extensive case histories that were compiled by social workers and psychologists and other case workers who assessed the children.
The detailed case histories contain the social workers' transcripts of interviews with the child and their extended family, the clinic psychologist's reports, physical examination and medical report.
The files include the results of a range of tests the child undertook to check their level of literacy, numeracy, non-verbal ability, IQ and inkblot method.
The file enclosures include:
