Early Development Instrument (EDI)

School Readiness and Thunder Bay Superior North Region Community Reports

Brass Bell Family Resource Centre/Best Start assists in implementing the Early Development Instrument (EDI)  The EDI is a population based measure observing children's developmental health at school entry or school readiness.

The EDI data collection is overseen by the Offord Centre for Child Studies on a provincial and national level and was part of the Understanding the Early Years (UEY) initiative by Human Resources and Social Development Canada.

The Thunder Bay Superior North Region has participated in the EDI over the school year cycles 2005/2006, 2008/2009, 2011/2012, and once again in 2014/2015 (report pending).
