Brain development in children: Australian Early Development Census
Brain development
in children:
"A child’s brain develops in response to both genes and
the environment. It is the interaction between the genes
and environment that really shape the developing brain; a
dance between biology and experience..."

A great factsheet from AEDC...
"Since 2002, the Australian Government has worked in partnership with eminent child health research institutes, Centre for Community Child Health, Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, and the Telethon Kids Institute, Perth to deliver the Australian Early Development Index programme to communities nationwide. On 1 July 2014, the Australian Early Development Index (AEDI) programme became known as the Australian Early Development Census (AEDC), and was launched through a new website www.aedc.gov.au. The Australian Government continues to work with its partners, and with state and territory governments to implement the AEDC.
This product is based on the materials developed by the Centre for Community Child Health, Royal Children’s Hospital, Melbourne, and the Australian Government Department of Education has been granted permission to adapt for its use."
