Lisa Stanley is Project Director for the Transforming Early Childhood Community Systems (TECCS) project which uses the Early Development Instrument (EDI) to provide communities with a population-based measure of school readiness to inform local planning and improvement efforts. She has worked in the maternal and child health arena for the past 15 years both overseas in rural West Africa and domestically at the federal and local levels. She has worked in the areas of longitudinal research, community-level evaluation, strategic planning, policy analysis, program management, and coalition development with a focus on maternal and child health, home visiting, childhood immunizations, children with special health care needs, and school readiness. Ms. Stanley coordinated the development of Los Angeles County’s Maternal and Child Health, five-year strategic plan, and managed the county’s local evaluation of its Nurse-Family Partnership home visiting program.
Over the past five years, she was lead evaluator for the First 5 Ventura County effort; coordinated the development of the second edition of the National Survey of Early Childhood Health; and coordinated the Developmental Services Quality Performance Measurement Project to establish a common set of measures for use by state Medicaid agencies to monitor the quality of developmental services.
