Ages ad Stages Questionnaire

Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)

Curious about your child's development? Do an ASQ! 

The Ages and Stages Questionnaire is a parent completed tool that gives information about a child's development. Parents fill out the questionnaire that asks questions around the key developmental areas, based on their child's age, and a Norwood Centre staff member guides the parents through the results.  

 

The results help parents and professionals identify areas of strength as well as areas that need more focus and, most importantly, celebrate the milestones the child achieves as they grow and learn. This tool relies on you as the expert about your child.

Based on the answers that you have provided Norwood Centre's program staff can recommend fun, play-based activities that will target development areas that may need further support, or make referrals as needed.

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.

The questionnaires are most effective if they are done regularly. It is recommended that parents complete the questionnaire every 4 months in their child's first two years of life, and every 6 months until they reach the age of 5.
