Early Childhood Development (ECD) programs are currently understood as critical for children’s cognitive and socioemotional development, especially for those from disadvantaged backgrounds or most at risk for poor outcomes. Nevertheless, while the pioneering ECD programs evaluated in the literature have shown large and long-lasting impacts, replicating their successes has proven challenging in more recent years. We characterize this replication crisis and provide perspectives on how wearable technologies could help overcome it.
