Topics covered by the TDI

  • Child health & well-being
  • Early social experiences
  • Caregiver well-being & context
  • Family support
  • Community resources

Why is the TDI important?

Children’s early experiences have been shown to affect lifelong health and well-being. The purpose of the TDI is to increase our understanding of the early experiences, needs, and barriers faced by families with young children. Group-level findings from the TDI will be shared with communities and stakeholders to inform planning and action at local and regional levels. We anticipate that TDI data will contribute to building family and community resources, which, in turn, will better support the well-being of children, families, and communities.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do I have to participate in the TDI?

Participation in this project is voluntary. If you start the survey and change your mind, you can stop at any time.

How is my privacy protected?

Your responses to the TDI are kept confidential. Information collected with the TDI is reported at a group level by combining your responses with others’ who live in the same area as you. To learn more about this and other ways we protect privacy, please visit the HELP website.

Can I see the study results?

Once the study is complete, a report will be made available to share with communities.

Can I save my responses and come back to the TDI to finish it later?

At this time, there is no save function available for the TDI, so it is best to complete it in one sitting.

The questionnaire only takes about 15 minutes to complete.
