ECMap’s final report —How are our young children doing? Final report of the Early Child Development Mapping Project (ECMap) — shows that many young children in Alberta are falling below the Canadian norm in their development and that wide disparities exist in development results among communities.
The report also indicates a strong interrelationship between socio-economic status and early development results.
