Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)

Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQs) help you and our staff  understand how your child is developing, they are just one of the tools we may use during our contact with you - but of course most important of all is what you tell us about your child. If we know your child has an additional need you will be contacted separately by a member of our team, or call us to discuss further.

The ASQs are not a measure of how well your child is or isn't doing, as we know all children develop differently. They are something that we use together to talk about the things your child does easily, to think about any concerns you might have and how we can support you and your child with those. They are split into 5 different areas;

Communication: Your child’s language skills, both what your child understands and what he or she can say - this can be sounds, babbling or talking.

Gross Motor: How your child uses their arms and legs for sitting, crawling, walking, running, and other activities.

Fine Motor: How your child uses their hands and fingers - for example scribbling or picking up food.

Problem Solving: How your child plays with toys and solves problems.

Personal-Social: Your child’s self-help skills and how they play and interact with others.

The ASQ that is used is based on the age of your child, but we may decide together that this is not right for your child and decide to use a different age or an alternative assessment tool - this is nothing to worry about - we are just making sure we use the right tool for your child.

What to do next?

You don't need to print the ASQ to complete it. Open the questionnaire that is closest to your child's age. Have a look at each of the questions and think about whether your child is able to complete that task. If you are are worried about any areas of your child's development please contact us by calling Just One Number.

If you would like to print and send us a completed copy of the ASQ, you can post to; Norfolk Children and Young People’s Health Services, Unit 3, Cringleford Business Centre, Intwood Road, Norwich, NR4 6AU or email: ccs.nhcp-norfolkcyphealthservices@nhs.net
