Lucy’s talk is titled ‘Mutual-Scaffolding as Pedagogical Practice’. The purpose of this study was to empower a child to share their lived experience using the Mosaic Approach and to ascertain strategies as they took to facilitate the adult’s understanding.

The research used a constructionist paradigm establishing that researcher and participant have differing perspectives based on previous experience, following an emancipatory methodology facilitated by the Mosaic Approach.
