Screening with ASQ is a powerful first step to understanding how a child is progressing through his or her developmental milestones. Parents, educators, and professionals gain critical knowledge that helps them determine what to do next. With its parent-friendly design and flexibility in administration, ASQ works in the entire range of settings where young children are served—from child care centers to public health visits. For children on track, ASQ results offer reassurance and the opportunity to celebrate new milestones. For children who are not meeting milestones (or fall below the ASQ-3™ cutoff), the ASQ tools provide an indication where further intervention services are needed.
This training of trainer intensive provides capacity within agencies to effectively and consistently introduce and support the ongoing use of this validated screening tool.
The ASQ-3™ and ASQ:SE-2™ Training of Trainers (TOT) seminar is designed for intermediate to advanced participants who have experience using the screening tools and will be training staff within their organizations. Training considerations and tips are embedded throughout the TOT presentation such as things to consider when facilitating a scoring exercise with a group.
In addition to participating in all training activities, TOT participants will have opportunities to integrate and practice presenting ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2 content. Participants will have opportunities to discuss specific considerations for audiences they will be training (childcare providers, pediatricians) and begin planning for their own future training for their organization.
Given the intensive nature of this training, participants will be required to provide a letter from their agency confirming that they have a working understanding of the ASQ tools in practice, i.e. to demonstrate that participants currently use the tool within the scope of their work within an agency or on a regular basis.
