April 2018 ASQ-3 & ASQ:SE-2 Training of Trainers Institute

April 16–18 in Longboat Key, FL

Learn everything you need to know to instruct your colleagues in using Ages & Stages Questionnaires®, Third Edition (ASQ-3™), and Ages & Stages Questionnaires®: Social-Emotional, Second Edition (ASQ:SE-2™) to screen infants and young children for developmental and social-emotional delays.

This thorough 3-day seminar shows you how to:

  • implement ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2 effectively
  • score questionnaires and interpret results
  • discuss results sensitively with families
  • understand the referral process
  • work with families from diverse cultural backgrounds
  • teach others within your organization how to successfully use ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2

While at the Institute, you’ll receive instruction from an ASQ expert, practice forms, case studies, and a binder with handouts for conducting trainings within your organization. See a sample agenda.

Upon your successful completion of the Institute, a certificate of attendance and a USB flash drive of training materials will be sent by mail. Read our Terms of Use to learn more about how you can use the training binder and USB flash drive after completion of the Institute.

The Institute is designed for intermediate to advanced ASQ users who already oversee ASQ implementation and ASQ training within their organization; participants will leave the Institute prepared to instruct colleagues on ASQ-3 and/or ASQ:SE-2. However, new ASQ users also may find the Institute beneficial to their understanding and implementation of ASQ-3 and/or ASQ:SE-2. All participants will receive valuable information to advance their skill level and knowledge of the tools.
