Would you like to learn more about your child’s development?

The Weymouth CFCE offers a developmental screening called the ASQ (Ages and Stages Questionnaire). Parents and caregivers can access the Questionnaire on our Family Access Page. (Click here) All screenings are free, confidential and a great way to assess your child’s development.

What is ASQ, exactly?

ASQs help families reflect upon and review their child’s strengths, interests, attributes and areas that may need support.

Here are the five important areas of development that each questionnaire looks at:

  1. Communication: Your child’s language skills, both what your child understands and what he or she can say.

  2. Gross Motor: How your child uses their arms and legs and other large muscles for sitting, crawling, walking, running, and other activities.

  3. Fine Motor: Your child’s hand and finger movement and coordination.

  4. Problem Solving: How your child plays with toys and solves problems.

  5. Personal-Social: Your child’s self-help skills and interactions with others.

How does it work?

You may receive your ASQ questionnaire in the mail, or be given access to a secure website where you can fill it out, or be given the questionnaire during an in-person visit.

  • You’ll answer each question based on what your child is able to do now. Your answers help show your child’s strengths and areas where they may need practice or support.

  • After you complete the ASQ questionnaire, just return it to the Weymouth CFCE Center. They’ll score the questionnaire, share the results with you, and discuss any follow-up steps.
