ASQ Developmental Checkups
WHAT IS A DEVELOPMENTAL CHECKUP >>
A developmental checkup is a complete head-to-toe assessment for your child to ensure that his or her growth and development is progressing on track. Unlike a standard health checkup performed at your child’s annual doctor visit, a developmental checkup is based on your child’s actions, interactions, and abilities.
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends developmental checkups at your child’s 9, 18, 24 and 36 month well-child visits, although they can be performed every few months until your child’s fifth birthday.
Pretend City’s Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) screens and pinpoints the developmental progress of children in the areas of communication, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, problem solving, and personal-social skills. It is used to by early educators and health care professionals to celebrate development milestones and identify delays.
In as few as 15 minutes, this free questionnaire captures your child’s strengths and areas for further support, while connecting you with educational resources and experts.

Where Can My Child Receive a Developmental Checkup?
Right here! You may not be a child development specialist, but you are the expert regarding your own child. Developmental checkups can also be performed by your family doctor or pediatrician. At your next well-child visit, ask your doctor if he or she can perform a complete developmental checkup for your child. If you have any concerns, be sure to let your child’s doctor know.
