Developmental screening is a parent questionnaire that looks at general aspects of a child’s current developmental growth. Boost Collaborative can provide developmental screening through an easy to use system known as the Ages and Stages Program.
From birth to three years old, a child progresses through many stages of developmental mastery. During this time of rapid growth and development. Our Ages and Stages Program is here to help support parents by monitoring and recording their child’s developmental milestones.
When a child is enrolled in our ASQ program, questionnaires are sent out every two to three months for the parent to fill out and mail back into the office. We score the screening and let the parent know how their child is doing. If a developmental delay is indicated, a staff member will call and check in with the family to see how things are going and how we can help. We also can provide handouts if concerns arise and connect the family to our Early Intervention services, when indicated by developmental concerns.
The Ages and Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ®) provide reliable, accurate, developmental and social-emotional screenings for children between birth to three, drawing on the parents’ expert knowledge of their child. ASQ has been specifically designed to pinpoint developmental progress and catch delays in young children-paving the way for meaningful next steps in learning, intervention and monitoring. The questionnaires have simple, straight-forward questions parents answer about their child.
Boost Collaborative is also available to provide hearing screenings for all children. The ASQ program is provided at no cost to families with children ages birth to three living in Whitman and Garfield Counties.
