The Ages & Stages Questionnaires: Social-Emotional (ASQ SE-2 ) is a child-monitoring system for Social-Emotional behaviours. It was developed to compliment the Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3™ ) developmental screening tool by providing information specifically addressing the social and emotional behaviour of children ranging in age from 3 to 66 months. The ASQ: SE is a screening tool that identifies infants & young children whose social or emotional development requires further evaluation to determine if referral for intervention services is necessary. Developmental areas covered by this screening tool include: self-regulation, compliance, communication, adaptive functioning, autonomy, affect and interaction with people. Workshop participants will learn how to use the ASQ:SE® with families in their program and learn more about children’s social and emotional development.
