“We’ll be screening your child with ASQ.”
If you’re like most parents, you probably have many questions when someone says your child will be screened. You know your child better than anyone else, and the thought of “scoring” what they can and can’t do might make you feel a little uneasy. You might wonder how a questionnaire can accurately capture all your child’s skills, and if screening might lead to a label or diagnosis. And as a busy, concerned parent, you might have practical questions too, like how long is this going to take? and what happens next? Check out the ASQ Parents page to learn about the "Why, How and Next Steps" of screening.
