Creating Curiosity, Care and Coordination – Using the ASQ-3 to Communicate about Children’s Development

April 22, 2013

Open to the first 60 registrants only. This will fill quickly!

Learn to administer, score, and interpret the Ages and Stages Questionnaire – Third Edition (ASQ-3), a widely-used parent questionnaire designed to screen for developmental delays among children 1 month – 5 ½ years of age.

Who should attend:
Mental health providers, social workers, administrators from public and private agencies, law enforcement, and policymakers

Download registration form to sign up.

Participants will learn to use the ASQ-3 to engage parents to think about their children’s development and to make appropriate referrals. Video, role-play, and group discussion will be used to help participants reflect on their own reactions to developmental concerns, plan meetings to debrief with parents about the results, and partner with parents in thinking about ways to support their children’s development.

Participants will learn:

  • The uses of a screening tool as a central part of an integrated system of care.
  • To administer and score the Third Edition of the Ages and Stages Questionnaire.
  • To use the results of the screening to discuss children’s progress and enhance parent-provider relationships.
