FAQ for Developmental Screening

What is screening?

Screening is a quick check of your child’s development. Screening takes a snapshot of your child’s current skills and helps accurately identify children who may be at risk for delays.

Why is it important for my child to be screened?

Screening can identify your child’s strengths, uncover new milestones to celebrate, and reveal any areas where your child may need support. It helps you understand your child’s development and work with doctors and educators to plan next steps when it makes the most difference—your child’s critical first years of life.

What is the ASQ?

The Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) screeners are sets of valid, reliable, and age-appropriate questionnaires that are filled out by the true expert on your child—you!

The ASQ-3 is the questionnaire that looks specifically at five important areas of development: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving and personal-social.

How does the screening process work?

    1. You will fill out online ASQ questionnaire via a link to a secure website.
    2. You’ll answer each question based on what your child is able to do now. Your answers help show your child’s strengths and areas where they may need practice or support.
    3. After you complete the ASQ questionnaire, we will contact you to share the results with you and to discuss any follow-up steps.
