The Early Human Capability Index (eHCI) is a holistic measure intended to capture early child development across diverse cultures and contexts.
The eHCi has been developed with a view to capturing the key aspects of child development in 3-5-year-olds that predict future capabilities.
The eHCi is an easy-to-use survey tool that can be completed by parents/caregivers, child care workers, teachers, allied health and other health or early childhood practitioners.
It is not a developmental milestone test, but is a measure of where a child can be placed on a developmental spectrum.
As such the eHCi can determine if a child is thriving or doing poorly on different aspects of development, and can detect developmental change over time.
