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.

Family Coaching

Family Coaching provides supported parenting modeling and mentoring. Through this one-on-one in-home support, families interact with Family Educators to increase their knowledge and build skills related to positive parenting and healthy attachment. As each family is different, there is no predetermined program or path that families must follow.  This approach provides “in the moment” feedback and support to develop skills and confidence while meeting the needs of the family.
