Ages & Stages Questionnaires®: Social-Emotional (ASQ:SE) A Parent Completed, Child-Monitoring System for Social-Emotional Behaviors

Created in response to feedback for the popular Ages & Stages Questionnaires®, the ASQ:SE gives users what they’ve been asking for: an easy-to-use tool with a deep, exclusive focus on children’s social and emotional behavior and all the advantages of ASQ — it’s cost-effective, parent-completed, photocopiable, and culturally sensitive. Field-tested by professionals with thousands of families and enriched by their feedback, this research-validated screening system helps home visitors, educators, caregivers, and service providers assess children’s social-emotional development at 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 48, and 60 months. With the results, professionals can quickly recognize young children at risk for social or emotional difficulties, identify behaviors of concern to caregivers, and identify any need for further assessment.

The ASQ:SE system includes

  • 8 questionnaires and corresponding scoring sheets (on CD-ROM and paper—now included in both formats in every ASQ:SE box!). Parents complete the short, simple questionnaires at eight designated intervals: 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 48, and 60 months. Set up like the ASQ-3, these questionnaires prompt parents to answer 22–36 questions with most of the time, sometimes, and rarely or never. Each questionnaire takes just 10–15 minutes for parents to complete and addresses seven crucial behavioral areas: self-regulation, compliance, communication, adaptive functioning, autonomy, affect, and interaction with people.

    For every questionnaire, there’s an easy-to-use form that allows professionals to score the test in 1-3 minutes and determine the child’s progress in that social-emotional area. The reproducible scoring sheets all include referral considerations that help determine if the child needs further evaluation.

  • The ASQ:SE User’s Guide. Clear and comprehensive, the User’s Guide walks professionals step-by-step through the process of setting up and running ASQ:SE. The User’s Guide provides instructions on administering the questionnaires with sensitivity to children’s environmental, cultural, and social-emotional differences, detailed technical data on how the system was developed and tested, helpful case examples, and creative activities and lists of social-emotional behaviors professionals can share with parents for use with each age group. Spanish translations of letters to parents and selected forms are also included.
