Dr. Geraldine Rickard Weil was an innovator in the study of child development. Among her many accomplishments in advancing the welfare of children, she created the Tasks of Emotional Development (TED) test in 1971, which is still widely used in schools for the assessment of children today, nearly 50 years later.
