What is Developmental Screening?

A child’s physical growth is measured by looking at their height and weight, but growth also involves their cognitive and social development. No two children progress exactly alike, but there are stages known as milestones that can help guide you through looking at your child’s development. One of the screening tools recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics is the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3) and the Ages and Stages Social Emotional Questionnaire (ASQ-SE2). These screenings look at your child’s unique development and provides specific information with fun learning activities for your child.

Ages and Stages Questionnaire Screeners

The ASQ-3 is for children ages 1 month through 66 months (5 ½). The ASQ-SE2 is for children ages 1 month through 72 months (about 6 years). If you have questions on issues related to the development of a child over the age of 5, please give us a call. Sprouts Child Development is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit.

Why is it important to screen my child?

Screening provides a quick check of your child’s development. It identifies your child’s strengths and can uncover any areas where your child may need support. It helps you understand where your child’s development is at and it allows you to work with doctors and educators to plan next steps during your child’s critical first years of life.

What’s the difference between the ASQ-3 and the ASQ-SE2?

ASQ-3: Each screener has 30 questions about child’s abilities, organized in five developmental areas: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal-social. Each screener has three main parts: 1) a family information sheet, 2) six items/questions to be answered in each developmental area by a parent or primary caregiver (30 questions total) and, 3) a series of Overall questions that give parents and caregivers the opportunity to share concerns that may have not been captured on the scored portion of the screening. There are 21 screenings for use at different ages of the ASQ-3.

ASQ-SE2: Screens the developmental area of social and emotional behaviors. It addresses the 7 key behavioral areas of self-regulation, compliance, adaptive functioning, autonomy, affect, social-communication, and interaction with people. There are 9 screenings (in months) 2, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 48, and 60. Each screener has about 30 questions.

Should I do both the ASQ-3 and the ASQ-SE2 if I’m only concerned about my child’s behavior?

Yes, the ASQ:SE-2 focuses only on social-emotional skills and behavior. To be sure that you are taking a comprehensive look at your child’s development, we recommend completing the ASQ-3 as well.
