  • 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.

    Parents can complete a FREE Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) by clicking the button on the left. This is a free parent completed assessment on your child’s development.

    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.

    The ASQ screens and assesses the developmental performance of children in the areas of communication, gross motor skills, fine motor skills, problem solving, and personal-social skills. It is used to identify children that would benefit from in-depth evaluation for developmental delays.

    YOUR ADDED BONUS – A FREE child’s ticket to Pretend City when you complete the ASQ! (Results are sent between 2 – 14 business days after screening is submitted)

  • Ages & Stages Questionnaire

    What is an Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)?

    An Ages & Stages Questionnaire is a parent completed developmental checkup taken to ensure that your child’s growth and development is progressing on track. It looks at your child’s strengths and challenges, educates you about developmental milestones, and incorporates your expert knowledge about your child to learn more about their development. It assesses five major development areas: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal social. It is valid, reliable and American Academy of Pediatrics recommended. 

    Where Can I Find an Ages & Stages Questionnaire?

    Two types of ASQ’s are available.  The ASQ-3 which evaluates growth and development and the ASQ:SE-2 which evaluates social and emotional development.  You can take one or both.  They will take you each about 20 minutes to complete.
