Natural Disaster Recovery Resources

Birdie’s Tree is a suite of resources to help families with babies and young children recover from the emotional effects of natural disasters. The suite includes:

  • Birdie’s Tree online interactive games
  • Five storybooks (Birdie and the Flood, Birdie and the Fire, Birdie and the Cyclone, Birdie and the Earthquake, Birdie and the Drought)
  • Information and resources for parents and carers
  • A curriculum for early childhood care and education settings

Dissemination of the resources is being tracked for later evaluation of use.
The effectiveness of the early childhood curriculum will be formally evaluated in partnership with Central Queensland University, 2018-2020.
