What is ASQ?

According to the Ages and Stages Website: “ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2 are screening tools. They will provide a developmental snapshot of the child at that specific time. Screening detects developmental delays in children—and celebrates milestones. Screening young children is an effective, efficient way for professionals to gauge developmental progress and determine meaningful next steps—at a time when action can have its greatest impact: during a child’s first years of life. Because social-emotional and developmental delays in children can be subtle and can occur in children who appear to be developing typically, most children who would benefit from early intervention are not identified until after they start school. In fact, this happens 70% of the time when busy pediatricians and specialists rely on clinical judgment alone.1”
