RAPID is a program of ongoing national and place-based surveys designed to gather essential information on the needs, health promoting behaviors, and well-being of young children and their caregivers. Kidsights Data is partnering with RAPID to gather more evidence to validate the Kidsights Data child development scale with information from caregivers across the United States. For more information, visit RAPID's website.
The Global Scales for Early Development (GSED) is an open-access package that has been specifically designed to provide a standardized method for measuring development of children up to 36 months of age at a global population level. The GSED was initiated by the World Health Organization (WHO) and developed through a global consortium of scientists. The Kidsights Data team worked with the WHO to test the GSED items in the United States. For more information, visit the GSED website.
We are grateful for the generosity of our funders who made Kidsights Data possible.
