Ages and Stages Questionnaires - Better Lives Healthy Futures

Ages and Stages Questionnaires

Age group:
For your child’s two year review (usually completed between the ages of 2 and 2½), your health visiting team will send you two questionnaires before your appointment.

These questionnaires are to help us look at their social and emotional development as well as their general development.

These are the Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ-3 and ASQ SE). They are for parents or carers to complete because you know your child best. It is a chance for you to tell us what your child can do and where they may need more help or practice.

They may also help you learn more about what your child can or could be doing and how to help their development.

You do not need to complete all the information like your address on the front sheet, just your name is fine.

Please complete these before the appointment and have them with you when you are seen.

Try some of the suggested activities with your child to help complete the questions. If you are not sure, then leave this blank and we can talk about this at the appointment. Please have your red book at the appointment as well.

You’ll be asked to make a response to each question from the list below,

  • Yes/most of the time – if your child is doing the skill
  • Sometimes – if your child is doing the skill but doesn’t do it all the time.
  • Not yet-rarely – if your child does not do the skill yet.
