Developmental Screening Tools

The ASQ-3 and ASQ-SE-2 are developmental screening tools that look at how children are doing in important areas, such as speech, physical ability, social skills, problem solving, and social-emotional development. The ASQ-3 and ASQ: SE-2 can help identify a child’s strengths as well as areas for support.

The Ages & Stages Questionnaires, Third Edition (ASQ-3) pinpoints developmental progress in children between the ages of one month to 5 ½ years. Its success lies in its parent-centric approach and inherent ease-of-use—a combination that has made it the most widely used developmental screener across the globe. A screening provides a quick look at how children are doing in important areas, such as communication, physical ability, social skills, and problem-solving skills. ASQ-3 can help identify children’s strengths as well as any areas where they may need support.

Early identification of social-emotional challenges can make all the difference to a young child. The proof is undeniable: the earlier a behavioral concern is identified, the greater the chance a child has for reaching his or her full potential in life. This is the driving force behind Ages & Stages Questionnaires: Social-Emotional, Second Edition (ASQ: SE-2)—a parent-completed, highly reliable system focused solely on social and emotional development in young children. Accurately identifying behavior through ASQ:SE-2 paves the way for next steps—further assessment, specialized intervention, or ongoing monitoring, for examples—to help children succeed during their most formative early years.
