Identifying children early.
The goal of state Child Find systems is to identify the infants and young children who require in-depth assessment and may be eligible for early intervention and special education services. Because Child Find systems operate first-level screening programs—programs that screen and monitor large numbers of children—you need a screening tool that is reliable, easy to use, cost-effective, and appropriate for diverse populations.
The Ages & Stages Questionnaires® (ASQ) meet the requirements for first-level comprehensive screening systems. Child Find systems in many states have made ASQ an integral component of their programs.
