Transforming Early Childhood Community Systems; Early Development Instrument (EDI)

infoDefinitions

The Early Development Instrument (EDI) is a population measure of how young children are developing through the use of five domains: 1) physical health and wellbeing, 2) social competence, 3) emotional maturity, 4) language and cognitive skills, and 5) communication skills and general knowledge. EDI is part of a national initiative called Transforming Early Childhood Community Systems (TECCS), developed to help match proven school readiness solutions with unique needs faced by communities. The local EDI data is created by the United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County. The trend analysis for the set of census tracts includes 306 tracts as of 2020.
