This 2-hour course is designed to help parents, teachers, and administrators use the ASQ-3 -- the Ages & Stages Questionnaire -- effectively for developmental screening. This course version is for students who will be completing the ASQ-3 screening process online through the South Carolina Child Care Inclusion Collaborative. If you will be using the paper version of the ASQ-3, please take the course "Developmental Screening and the ASQ-3" instead.

When the ASQ-3 is incorporated into a child care program, children, teachers, and families benefit through:
  • Improved outcomes for the children in your care
  • Increased communication with families
  • Stronger relationships with families

Development of this course module was funded by the South Carolina Department of Social Services Division of Early Care and Education.
