From their first month to six years old, your child is developing skills that set the foundation for lifelong success. By doing some fun, simple activities together and filling out a questionnaire (ASQ), you’ll be able to monitor your child’s early development and make sure they’re on track. ASQ makes it easy for you to understand how your child is developing. It identifies their strengths and provides activities to help them as they continue to learn. If your child needs assistance in a particular area, you’ll receive information about resources and support that can assist them. If you’re a new parent, sign up to take the the questionnaire today!
