AbstractChildren between the ages of 3 and 13 years who had experienced an injury serious enough to warrant Emergency Room treatment were interviewed about their experiences at one-year post-injury. At this time, approximately half the children (the control group) received a standard interview. The remaining children (the experimental group) received a combination of misleading and reinstating information and were also interviewed one week later in the standard format. Children's accuracy of recall did not differ between the control or experimental group children. Implications for children's legal testimony are discussed.
