Kidsights Measurement Tool
The Kidsights Measurement Tool is a parent-report measure, usually completed in an online survey, to measure typical early development of children birth to age 5 at the population level within the United States. The tool includes questions about child development based on the child's age and generates an overall score of child development. The Kidsights scores that results from the use of the tool are not intended to assess the development of individual children like a screener or diagnostic. Instead, Kidsights scores can be used to report on overall development for groups of children when measured in the context of factors associated with development, such as family income, education, geography and other family characteristics.

Kidsights Data Communications Tools
In addition to the survey to collect data on young children, we are developing several resources to support communications activities. The resources are intended to help organizations and partners plan how they would like to use the data and how to present data when it is available.
