Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQs) are developmental screening tools that are a quick check of your child’s development. Screening can identify your child’s strengths, uncover new milestones to celebrate, and reveal any areas where your child may need support. However, these questionnaires are strength focused asking questions to emphasize what your child can do. These sets of valid, reliable, and age-appropriate questionnaires are filled out by the true expert on your child—you!
Family Futures Resource Network offers this tool free of charge within programs and through a convenient online tool. You only need 10–15 minutes to fill out an ASQ-3 or ASQ: SE-2 questionnaire. It’s that quick and easy!
Once you complete the surveys, staff will review the results, share them with you to discuss any follow-up information and referral services if necessary.
