What is the ASQ-3®
ASQ-3® is an accurate, reliable, and parent-friendly way to screen young children. ASQ-3® is the newest version of the screening, and makes it easy to identify potential delays as early as possible and determine which children need further assessment or ongoing monitoring.

What is the ASQ-SE®? ASQ:SE® is a screening tool that identifies infants and young children whose social and emotional development requires further evaluation to determine if referral for intervention services is necessary.
