2021 AEDC National Conference: Trends in Child Development – The Future of Australia
The Call for Abstracts has now concluded. Abstracts are currently being reviewed and authors will be contacted in early December with a program released by January.
We invited abstracts for standard 20 minute presentations and rapid 3 minute presentations that share how AEDC data has been used to understand and respond to the factors impacting on children’s development. Presentations should have a focus on trends in child development that have shaped current policies, practices and research. We invite presentations that reflect on changes in the lives of children and families over the past decade, the ways in which these relate to trends in the AEDC data, and how this information has been incorporated in planning services and supports or shaped research initiatives.
International presentations are welcomed. The AEDC is based on the EDI used in multiple countries and there are numerous other population measures of child development being used across many different regions and cultures. The AEDC conference provides an opportunity to share and learn how different communities are utilising AEDC data and other measures of child development in Australia and across the world.
