Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)

The Ages and Stages Questionnaire, or ASQ, is a screening tool that provides a quick check of a child’s development. Please complete the ASQ to help reveal your child’s strengths, uncover any areas of concern, and determine if there are resources or services that may be useful for your child or family.

Please try the activities on the questionnaire with your child and record what you see and any concerns you’d like to share. (Español disponible abajo)

The purpose for collecting this information is two-fold. The Kansas State Department of Education requires Kindergarten readiness data as part of the accreditation process, to assess overall child preparedness for school and assist in funding determinations for Pre-K programs. USD 475 also uses this information to ensure we have programs that meet the needs of all students coming into our schools. [View Kansas Education Commissioner Randy Watson’s message to kindergarten parents and caregivers (mensaje a los padres y cuidadores de kindergarten).]

Data collection for the ASQ:3 and the ASQ:SE-2 is from August 1 – September 20. If you have completed these questionnaires for preschool or with your physician, we apologize for the inconvenience, but we need you to complete it again. The assessment is based on the child’s age in months, so results may be different now.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your building principal or Dr. Debra Gustafson, Associate Superintendent at the district office.
