Gender differences in the AEDC and into the school years

Consistent with all measures of child development, the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC) shows differences in development between boys and girls on school entry. While males and females are biologically different and develop at different rates throughout early childhood, researchers are interested in whether these differences continue into later areas of life and whether there may be a need to target interventions on the basis of gender. This research snapshot looks at these issues in further detail.
