Review by: Ruth Seedorf, Baby Bear Hugs

The user's guide is thorough … I appreciate the detail about the delivery of ASQ:SE-2 in various situations, and that it specifically addresses the use of ASQ:SE-2 with other languages. The Social Emotional Development Guides and Activities at the end will be very beneficial when talking to parents.

Review by: Martina Ebesugawa, Ed.D., Instructor, Child Development, Social Sciences and Humanities Division

The User's Guide allows the reader to understand that ASQ: SE-2 is not just a tool, but rather a tool that fits into a system and addresses a greater systemic need. It helps to empower county systems serving children at risk and with developmental and behavioral challenges [and provides] greater opportunity to identify the needs of these children, resulting in a stronger early intervention and early childhood education system.
