Mapping a Bright Future for Alberta's Young Children
Presenters: Laurie Lafortune and Dianna Souveny
This presentation looks at Alberta's Early Child Development Mapping Project (ECMap) and the ECD Mapping Initiative, that studies and maps early childhood development. This social action research project includes information gathered at a community level utilizing the Early Development Instrument (EDI), socioeconomic data and an inventory of community features and assets. Recent Alberta research findings and maps are presented along with community stories that illustrate collaborative community partnerships in both rural and urban Alberta.
