Community stories

In 2009 the AEDC (formerly known as the AEDI) was completed nationwide for the first time. Since then, communities and schools across Australia have been using their results to plan, develop and evaluate a wide range of initiatives for children and families.

Following the fourth nation-wide collection of AEDC data in 2018, communities and schools now have ​four sets of data to build a more comprehensive picture of child development, and for further informing activities and initiatives for shaping the environments of children.

A series of Community Stories have been developed to showcase the AEDC in action in communities across Australia.

The Queensland Department of Education has developed a series of written and video resources that explore common themes across diverse Queensland communities. The 3 communities in focus have experienced a consistent decline in developmental vulnerability over the past decade. The voices of community members present their Community Story by describing collaborative actions taken to improve outcomes for children and families.
