The Ages & Stages Questionnaires (ASQ-3) provide a fun, interactive way to understand the many changes a baby or young child goes through.

At what age should a child sit up? Hold onto a toy? Say her first words? Parents naturally have questions about how their child is learning, behaving or developing.

One way you, as a parent, can have some of your questions answered, as well as to keep track of how your child is developing, is to enroll in Connecticut’s Ages and Stages Child Monitoring Program, a FREE service provided by Help Me Grow at Child Development Infoline (CDI).

Just by answering a few questions, you can keep track of your child’s development from 2 months to 5 years  the most important time to get your child ready to succeed in school and in life.  ASQ questionnaires are sent out at the following intervals:  2, 4, 8, 12, 16, 20, 24, 27, 30, 33, 36, 42, 48, 54 and 60 months of age.   You can sign up to start receiving questionnaires at any time during the first five years of your child’s life.

Healthy social and emotional development is also important for your child’s success in school and life!  Now you can track your child’s social and emotional development during their first five years by using the Ages and Stages Social Emotional questionnaires (ASQ:SE-2).

After you return each questionnaire, we’ll contact you with information about your child’s development, along with fun learning activities to do with your child.  Connections to community services and other resources may also be provided, if any concerns are identified.
