ASQ is a screening for children’s development. It has been used for more than 20 years to help parents identify their children's strengths or areas where they may need additional support. The ASQ provides a quick look at how children are doing in important areas of development.
At what age should a child sit up, hold on to a toy, or say their first words? Parents have natural questions about how their child is learning, developing, or behaving, and wonder if there are any concerns. The ASQ-3 questionnaire includes questions about your child's communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal social skills.
The ASQ screening can help identify your child’s strengths and any areas where your child may need support. As a parent or caregiver, you know your child best. That’s why the ASQ screening is designed to be filled out by you. It’s quick and easy. You will only need 10-15 minutes.
How ASQ Online Screening Works
- To answer each question, you can try fun and simple activities with your child. These activities encourage your child to play, move around, and practice every day skills.
- You will answer each question based on what your child is able to do now. For example, the questions may be answered with a simple “yes,” “sometimes,” or “not yet.”
- After you complete the ASQ screening, a Help Me Grow specialist will share and discuss the results with you. If your child has trouble with some skills, Help Me Grow will help you with next steps.
Finding delays as early as possible supports young children’s healthy development. You know your child best, and you are an active partner in your child’s learning and development.
