Ages & Stages Questionnaires (ASQs) provide reliable, accurate developmental and social-emotional screening for children between 1 month and age 6. Drawing on parents’ expert knowledge, ASQ has been specifically designed to pinpoint developmental progress and catch delays in young children — paving the way for meaningful next steps in learning, intervention, or monitoring. ASQ can be key in early intervention by helping educators, doctors, and families understand children’s strengths, set goals, and access support.
Both ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2 can be found on the Sparkler app.
The ASQ-3 measures 5 domains of development: Communication, Gross and Fine Motor, Problem-Solving, Personal-Social
Over 21 Questionnaire intervals: 2, 4, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20, 22, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 42, 48, 54, 60 months
ASQ:SE-2 Measures 7 Core Social-Emotional Behavioral Areas: Self-regulation, Compliance, Adaptive Functioning, Autonomy, Affect, Social-Communication, Interaction
Over 9 Questionnaire intervals: 2, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 48, 60 months
