The Ages & Stages Questionnaires (ASQ)T system is a low-cost, reliable way to screen infants and young children for developmental delays during the crucial first 5 years of life. Parents complete the simple, illustrated 30-item questionnaires at designated intervals, assessing children in their natural environments to ensure valid results. Each questionnaire can be completed in just 10-15 minutes and covers five key developmental areas: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal-social. Professionals convert parents' responses of yes, sometimes, and not yet - in just 2-3 minutes - to color-coded scoring sheets, enabling them to quickly determine a child's progress in each developmental area. The ASQT User's Guide then offers clear guidelines for determining whether children are at high or low risk in the various domains. ASQT keeps costs down by providing photocopiable forms (see photocopying release) that can be mailed to parents. Or, the questionnaires can be completed by parents during home visits - there's a helpful video that demonstrates the process. And questionnaires are also available in Spanish, French, and Korean for professionals who work with families that speak those languages. It's a flexible, culturally sensitive, and economical way to track the developmental progress of young children. Eight new questionnaires, added to this edition as a result of user feedback, extend the age-range of the system and help to create a more authentic means of measuring the rapidly developing skills of young children.
