Early Development Instrument (EDI)

The Early Development Instrument!

The Early Development Instrument (EDI) is a population measure of how your children are developing in different communities across the United States. It measures these children on the five key areas or domains of early childhood development:

  • Physycal Health and Wellbeing
  • Social Competence
  • Emotional Maturity
  • Language and Cognitive Skills
  • Communication Skills and General Knowledge

The Wichita County EDI Task Force has three sub-committees using the 2015 results to determine and address areas of need in our community:

  • Physical Health and Well-being
  • Social Competency & Emotional Maturity
  • Language Development, Communication Skills & General Knowledge

Additionally, Ad-hoc committees are formed (such as transportation) as the need arises.
