Forensic interviews with preschoolers can be challenging for a variety of reasons. For the last decades, scholars have therefore been interested in examining interviewing techniques and tools intended to improve young children’s witness reports. Drawings constitute one such tool that has shown mixed results with regard to preschool-aged children. The present experiment was designed to investigate how the use of drawings may influence young children’s accounts (in terms of their quantity of details and accuracy) about experienced and non-experienced events in relation to different question types. A total of 115 preschoolers (aged 3 to 6 years) were asked questions about an event involving a pirate visit to their preschool. Of those preschoolers, 80 children had met the pirate and were asked during their interview to either draw the pirate while answering questions (drawing condition) or to just answer the questions verbally (control condition). An additional 30 children who had not met the pirate were interviewed for exploratory purposes about the non-experienced event either by using drawings and answering questions or by questioning alone. The data is currently being analysed and the main findings will be presented at the NNPL meeting.
