What is an ASQ?
Ages & Stages Questionnaires®, Third Edition (ASQ-3™) is a screening tool that will provide a quick check of your child’s development. The information you supply will help reveal your child’s strengths, uncover any areas of concern, and determine if there are community resources or services that may be useful for your child or your family.
ASQ-3 is a set of questionnaires about children’s development. It has been used for more than 20 years to make sure children are developing well. It is called a screener because it looks at how children are doing in important areas, such as speech, physical ability, social skills, and problem-solving skills. ASQ-3 can help identify your child’s strengths as well as any areas where your child may need support.
As a parent or caregiver, you are the best source of information about your child. That’s why ASQ-3 questionnaires are designed to be filled out by you. You will only need 10-15 minutes. It’s that quick and easy.
Why is screening important?
Not every delay is visible to the eye. Developmental delays and disabilities, such as autism, emotional disturbances, and speech and language disorders, often go undetected until a child enters elementary school. Study after study has shown that the earlier a delay is recognized and intervention is begun, the better the child’s chance of substantial improvement. Developmental screening is one of the best things you can do to ensure a child’s success in school and life. (And that’s why so many organizations have made it a top priority.)
How does it work?
What happens next?
Parent teacher conferences based on ASQ results will be offered the first two weeks of December. If your child is developing without concerns, there is nothing more you will need to do. You may try the next ASQ-3 age level as your child grows and learns new skills. There are 21 questionnaires that you can use with children from 1 month to 5½ years old. If your child has trouble with some skills, your program will help you with next steps. Finding delays or problems as early as possible supports young children’s healthy development.
You are an active partner in your child’s learning and development. By completing ASQ-3 questionnaires, you are making sure your child is off to the best possible start!
