Comprehensive ASQ-3™ and/or ASQ:SE-2 Seminar
Training includes the new ASQ:SE-2
The Comprehensive ASQ-3™ and/or ASQ:SE-2™ Seminar is a 2-day training seminar intended to provide an in-depth and individualized training to meet the needs of novice, intermediate, and advanced users. The Comprehensive seminar includes the basics of the Introduction to ASQ-3™ and ASQ:SE-2 and then goes into greater depth about the role of screening tools in early childhood assessment and community early care systems.
Through hands-on applied family studies and role plays, participants delve more deeply into the administration, scoring, interpretation, and sensitive communication of screening results, as well as practice talking to families about community referrals and follow-up. In addition, trainers will facilitate activities and discussion to explore cultural considerations for using the screening tool(s). As desired, trainers can also describe the research behind each tool and provide information about current and future research topics (how well tools identify children with autism).
Speakers will work with sites to individualize the training with specific areas of focus (home visiting, childcare settings, age groups, interagency coordination, implementation planning) and/or to meet the needs of more advanced users.
During the 2-day seminar, participants will learn
- the role of developmental screening in early childhood assessment
- features of each tool
- about the administration, scoring, and interpretation of screening results,
- how to communicate sensitively with families and talk about community referrals and follow-up, and
- the history behind the tools as well as future research projects
