Training Opportunities

Ages & Stages Questionnaires: Third Edition (ASQ-3)
Ages & Stages Questionnaire-3 (ASQ-3) is a low-cost, norm-referenced tool for screening infants and young children (1 month – 5 ½ years) for developmental delays during the crucial first years of life. The ASQ-3 relies on parents to observe their child and to complete the simple questionnaires about their child’s abilities. Having parents complete the developmental questionnaires is not only cost effective, but also enhances the accuracy of screening by tapping into parents’ in-depth knowledge about their children.

Ages & Stages Questionnaires: Social Emotional, Second Edition (ASQ:SE-2)
Ages and Stages Questionnaires: Social Emotional, Second Edition (ASQ:SE-2) is a parent-completed validated tool focused on social and emotional development in young children aged 1 month to 6 years. ASQ:SE-2 is low cost, reproducible, and can be used alone or in conjunction with the ASQ-3. This second edition of the ASQ-SE was newly revised in 2015 to include an expanded age range, a monitoring zone that identifies children close to the cutoff, and new data and cutoffs based on new standardization. With questionnaire results, professionals can recognize young children at risk for social or emotional difficulties, identify behaviors of concern to caregivers, and identify any need for further assessment.
Parents’ Evaluation of Developmental Status (PEDS)
Parents' Evaluation of Developmental Status (PEDS) is a norm-referenced developmental screen that elicits and addresses parents’ concerns for children birth to age 8. PEDS tells you when parents' concerns suggest problems requiring referral and which concerns are best responded to with advice or reassurance.
Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, Revised, with Follow-Up (M-CHAT-R/F)
The Modified Checklist for Autism in Toddlers, Revised, with Follow-Up (M-CHAT-R/F), is a 2-stage parent report screening tool to access risk for Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The M-CHAT-R/F is a free downloadable tool to be used with children aged 16-30 months old. Providers can classify a child’s risk of ASD as low, medium, or high, on the basis of parents’ responses to 20 questions. This tool maximizes sensitivity, as children who screen positive but not diagnosed with ASD, may be at risk for other developmental delays. The researchers updated an earlier version of the M-CHAT, adding examples, rephrasing some questions, and dropping others that previously did not elicit strong responses.
