Ages & Stages Questionnaires: Social Emotional, Second Edition

The ASQ®:SE-2 questionnaires are the most cost-effective, reliable way to screen young children for social-emotional issues in the first 6 years of life. Now in a NEW second edition, the 9 age-appropriate questionnaires (2, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 48, and 60 months) effectively screen 7 key social-emotional areas: self-regulation, compliance, adaptive functioning, autonomy, affect, social-communication, and interaction with people.

What's New in ASQ:SE-2

ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires are better than ever, with helpful new features like:

  • New 2 month questionnaire: Reliably screen and start monitoring children as young as 1 month, so critical interventions can start earlier.
  • Screen through kindergarten: Now you can screen children from 1–72 months with no gaps, so you can use ASQ:SE-2 through kindergarten and the transition to school.
  • New behavior and communication items designed to elicit parent concerns that may point to autism and early communication issues.
  • New data and cutoffs: ASQ:SE-2 is based on updated research and a large sample size of more than 14,000 diverse children.
  • New monitoring zone that clearly identifies children who are close to the cutoff and should be monitored and rescreened.
  • Questionnaire items revised and refined based on user feedback, to help parents provide the best responses.
  • Sturdy, convenient new box with a handle for easy portability.

How to Use ASQ:SE-2 Questionnaires

Fast and easy to use, ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires take just 10–15 minutes for parents to complete. First, parents fill out the questionnaire, checking the response that best describes their childs behavior: often or always, sometimes, or rarely or never. Clear questions help parents complete the questionnaires quickly and accurately, and open-ended questions ask about any related parental concerns. Professionals score the questionnaire in just 2–3 minutes, and then transfer a total score to a simple summary sheet along with any concerns the parent has noted. The summary sheet, a visual indicator of social emotional development and parent concerns, indicates whether any followup should be considered.

  • Total scores that fall in the graphs range of risk (dark shaded zone) indicate the child may need further evaluation.
  • NEW! A total score in the new monitoring zone (light shaded area) helps identify children that may require followup actions based on items of concern. Professionals can work with parents to address behaviors of concern and provide social-emotional development information sheets and activities to help their child make progress before the next screening.
  • Scores outside the shaded zones mean the childs social-emotional development appears to be developing on schedule. Parents can monitor their childs development by rescreening at the next ASQ:SE-2 interval.

When you purchase a box of ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires, youll get photocopiable master copies on paper and printable PDF master copies on CD-ROM—so you and your staff will always have the format you want, right at your fingertips.

"I am very impressed with the 2-month questionnaireI believe that it will help parents to be more watchful of their infant's development."
Review by: Kelly Isrow, Associate Coordinator Great Start Collaborative, TA Specialist, Oakland Schools Early Childhood

"ASQ:SE-2 has more areas where parents can document specific concerns or issues in detail. That information is critical for the professionals scoring ASQ:SE-2 In general, the advanced scoring system [with the addition of the monitoring zone] makes ASQ:SE-2 a stronger screening tool, and with the ability to calculate allowable exceptions due to diversity [with adjusted scoring], it is much more parent friendly."

Review by: Jennifer Shopp, Community of Recover Aiding Families in Transition (C.R.A.F.T)

"The 2 month questionnaire was very on point I also appreciated the informational summary sheet and its similarity to ASQ-3, which I currently use."

Review by: Ruth Seedorf, Baby Bear Hugs

"It is helpful to have the option of the 2 month questionnaire! The parenting educators that deliver ASQ:SE-2 will be happy to have an earlier option to help answer questions or concerns that parents bring up and to address their own concerns."
