The first five years are critical in a child’s life. And this is the most important time to get your child support for a developmental delay or special need. Easter Seals National created the Make the First Five Count program to raise awareness for kids at risk for developmental delays, Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and other disabilities.
Children develop skills, or “milestones,” at their own pace. How is your child doing? You only need 10-20 minutes to check with the Ages & Stages Questionnaires®, Third Edition. Your ASQ-3™ results will help you see if your child’s developmental progress is on time and alert you to concerns that you can talk over with your health care provider.
Please note: ASQ-3™ is designed for screening, not diagnosis. It is a quick check for children from birth through age five. If your child is age six or older, please discuss his or her development with your child’s health care provider, your local school district, or your child’s teacher. Your results from the questionnaire will be emailed to you within two weeks.
Free online access to ASQ-3™ is made possible by a grant from CVS Caremark. Ages & Stages Questionnaires® is a registered trademark of Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., Inc.
