Are the children in your program on track?
Use the #1 developmental screener to detect signs of delay early
The parent-completed Ages & Stages Questionnaires®, Third Edition (ASQ-3™) is the most accurate, family-friendly way to screen children for developmental delays between one month and 5½ years, without any gaps between the questionnaire age intervals. Recommended by top organizations such as the American Academy of Neurology, First Signs, and The Child Neurology Society*, ASQ-3 is highly valid and reliable. ASQ-3’s questions on behavior and communication also help elicit parent concerns that may point to autism.
