GLOSSARY

Australian Early Development Index (AEDI)

A population measure of young children's development as they enter their first year of formal school. Information for the AEDI is collected through a teacher-completed checklist that measures five areas of early childhood development. These five areas are closely linked to predictors of adult health, education and social outcomes. The five areas are; physical health and wellbeing, social competence, social maturity, language and cognitive skills(school-based) and communication skills and general knowledge. You can read more about the AEDI on their website - http://www.rch.org.au/aedi/

Developmentally vulnerable

Children who scored below the 10th percentile (in the lowest 10 per cent) of the national population were classified as vulnerable, based on the results from the Australian Early Development Index (AEDI) data collection.

Family

Two or more persons, one of whom is at least 15 years of age, who are related by blood, marriage (registered or defacto), adoption, step or fostering, and who are usually resident in the same household. The basis of a family is formed by identifying the presence of a couple relationship, lone parent child relationship or other blood relationship. Some households will, therefore, contain more than one family.

Household

One or more persons usually resident in the same private dwelling.

Physical health and wellbeing domain

This Australian Early Development Index (AEDI) domain measures a child's physical readiness for the school day, physical independence and gross and fine motor skills.

Support in time of crisis

Refers to whether there is someone outside the person's household that could be asked for support in a time of crisis. Support could be in the form of emotional, physical or financial help. Potential sources of support could be family members, friends, neighbours, work colleagues and various community, government and professional organisations.
