The Social Competence domain of the Early Learning Instrument (EDI)** includes curiosity about the world, eagerness to try new experiences, knowledge of standards of acceptable public behaviour, ability to control own behaviour, appropriate respect for adult authority, cooperation with others, following rules, and ability to play and work with other children.
40.7% of all children in New Brunswick who are vulnerable in at least one area of the EDI are vulnerable in social competence.
23.6% of the children in the Yukon who are vulnerable in at least one area of the EDI are vulnerable in social competence.
There are differences between how the EDI is administered between provinces and territories, as well as differences in how often it is administered. Therefore, the time period is not uniform – this needs to be considered when looking at differences across province/territories.
