The ASQ-3® is a set of simple questionnaires about child development. The questionnaires look at how your child is doing in areas such as language, movement and social skills. The ASQ-3® can help identify your child’s strengths as well as any areas of challenge. Early detection and intervention of possible developmental delays have a positive impact on health outcomes.

ASQ-3 questionnaires

  • are available in Arabic, English, French, Spanish, and Vietnamese

  • take just 10–15 minutes for parents to complete and 2–3 minutes for professionals to score

  • capture parents’ in-depth knowledge

  • highlight a child’s strengths as well as concerns

  • teach parents about child development and their own child’s skills

  • highlight results that fall in a “monitoring zone,” to make it easier to keep track of children at risk

  • can be completed at home, in a waiting room, during a home visit, or as part of an in-person or phone interview.

What happens during the screening?
The parent or the legal guardian will complete the questionnaire, which includes 30 questions in 5 developmental areas.  You will have time to ask questions, and the results of the screening will be provided to you before you leave your appointment.
