What screening tools are used?

The Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3) measures your child’s development in the areas of Communication, Gross Motor, Fine Motor, Problem Solving and Personal-Social skills.

The ASQ:Social-Emotional (ASQ:SE-2) focuses on your child’s Social-Emotional development – including sleep habits, toilet habits, mealtimes and behaviors.

The ASQ-3 and ASQ SE-2 take about 30-40 minutes to complete.

What happens after the screening?

An early childhood professional will send you the results of your child’s ASQ-3 within 5 business days and help you make a plan of action for your child’s continued development.
