Measuring Social-Emotional Skills in Children

  The ability to work as part of a team, build relationships, compromise, and adapt to change are skills formed during early childhood. United Way of Greater Cincinnati has partnered with the Devereux Center to create a system that measures social-emotional skills in young children, and last year completed assessments of over 4,600 students in our region. United Way of Greater Cincinnati Community Impact Director Patricia Nagelkirk and Bill Bresser, director of Kentucky Operations for the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Cincinnati, discuss the study and how the results will be used to create and modify youth programs in our area.
