Our Early Development Index (EDI) Spotlight No. 3 delves into the developmental domain: General Knowledge & Communication.
General Knowledge & Communication measures a child’s ability to understand verbal communications with other adults and children and to verbally communicate experiences, ideas, wishes, and feelings in a way that can be understood by others.
EDI in Action
- Network Anaheim Learn Well uses EDI along with the Neighborhood Equity Index to explore lessons learned where communities are doing better than expected and to identify the areas of biggest need. These data points defined the communities of focus for their first and subsequent Resident Leadership Academy workshops.
- First 5 OC will use EDI data to support and target the rollout of the updated Kid Builder activities.
