Your Norwood Family Support Worker (FSW) will help you create a plan based on goals you choose and prioritize for yourself, your family, and your household. Your FSW is a source of connections, information, encouragement, advocacy AND support for your child's ongoing development in their critical early years.

Health for Two 

Health for Two provides support throughout pregnancy and up to 2 months postpartum to people who require extra support to have a healthy pregnancy.


Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)


Parents who enroll at Norwood are provided an Ages and Stages Questionnaire for their child. This screening tool gives you a snapshot of where your child is in their development based on their age. The results help us identify any development delays and, most importantly, celebrate the milestones your child achieves going forward. This tool relies on you as the expert about your child.

There are two kinds of questionnaires:

  1. Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3)

    • This provides you information about your child across five developmental areas:

      • communication

      • gross motor

      • fine motor

      • problem-solving

      • personal-social

  2. Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional (ASQ: SE-2)

    • This provides you information about your child’s social and emotional development.
