Now enhanced and updated based on extensive user feedback and a NEW, unparalleled research sample of more than 12,000 children, ASQ-3 is the most accurate, cost-effective, and parent-friendly way to identify children from one month to 5½ years with developmental delays. The highly anticipated new edition of the screener professionals have trusted for more than 15 years, ASQ-3 offers more than any other screening system:

Recommended by the experts. The American Academy of Neurology, the Child Neurology Society, and First Signs recommend ASQ as a high quality screener. ASQ is also highly rated by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, Administration for Children and Families.

Accurate. Rigorous research with more than 12,000 children shows that ASQ-3 is reliable and valid with high levels of sensitivity and specificity, the two most important indicators of accuracy for a screener.

Sensitive to delays associated with autism. New, open-ended questions on behavior and expressive language assist in eliciting parent concerns.

Captures parents' in-depth knowledge. Because ASQ-3 questionnaires are completed by the caregivers who know the child best, they get the most accurate results and save time, and parents become an integral part of the screening process.

An invaluable parent education tool. With questionnaire items linked to developmental milestones, ASQ-3 helps teach parents about child development and their own child's skills.

Strengths based. ASQ-3 questionnaires reveal a child's strengths as well as areas of concern, so it's easier to develop a rapport with parents and share results.

Flexible screening anywhere. Parents can complete ASQ-3 questionnaires at home, in a waiting room, during a home visit, or as part of an in-person or phone interview.

Efficient. 2–3 minutes—that's all it takes to score ASQ-3 questionnaires after parents complete them. And unlike screeners that require more screening measures to clarify results, ASQ-3 saves time by collecting all the information needed from parents, quickly and easily.

Starter Kit includes;-
Everything you need to start screening children with ASQ-3: 21 photocopiable print masters of the questionnaires and scoring sheets, a CD-ROM with printable PDF questionnaires, the ASQ-3 User's Guide, and a FREE ASQ-3 Quick Start Guide.
