"We use the ASQ-3 questionnaires in our home visit program to help our families recognize where their child is developmentally. It's nice to have something that is developmentally appropriate across the board, recognized by medical staff, and easy to discuss with parents."
Review by: Timothy Kelley, Help Me Grow Project Director, Union County Health Department, Ohio
"We have partnered with daycares and doctor's offices in encouraging families to complete the questionnaire, and we have found ASQ-3 to be a great tool for child find, parent education, and helping childcare centers and physician's office know the children they serve better."

"The most important aspects of ASQ-3 [are] the new cutoff scores and encouraging monitoring of children to promote early intervention."

"Defining the near cutoff area on the summary page is a great addition to ASQ-3! No more 'second-guessing' about a child's results!"
