Ages & Stages Questionnaires: A Parent-Completed Child Monitoring System, Third Edition

ASQ®-3 Questionnaires are the most cost-effective, reliable way to screen young children for developmental delays in the first 5½ years of life. These 21 age-appropriate questionnaires in English (2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 42, 48, 54, and 60 months) effectively screen five key developmental areas: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal-social.

Fast and easy to use, ASQ-3 Questionnaires take just 10–15 minutes for parents to complete and 2–3 minutes for professionals to score.

First, parents try each activity on the questionnaire with their child, checking the box that best describes what the child can do. Clear questions, illustrations, and tips help parents complete the questionnaires quickly and accurately. Professionals then record the scores, easily converting parent responses to numbers (Yes = 10, Sometimes = 5, Not Yet = 0). They copy the child's scores to a simple grid that gives an at-a-glance picture of current developmental skills:

  • One or more scores in the grid's dark shaded zone indicate the child may need further assessment.
  • Scores in the light shaded "monitoring" zone help identify children at risk. Professionals can give parents activities to help their child make progress in these areas before the next screening.
  • Scores outside the shaded zones mean the child is doing well in these areas.

ASQ-3 Questionnaires are provided as photocopiable master copies on paper and printable PDF master copies on CD-ROM (both in the same box, so programs will always have the format they want right at their fingertips). Download a sample 16 month questionnaire and a sample 48 month questionnaire.

  • Expanded administration windows—screen any child, anytime from 1–66 months.
