Easy, customizable, and even a little fun: ASQ Training

ASQ-3™ and ASQ:SE-2™ are easy to use by providers with varying levels of education and expertise, and they generally require little training. Many programs use the DVD training tools—they’re short, inexpensive, and can be shown as often as needed.

Other programs wish to maximize their use of ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2 and arrange for on-site seminars or attend the trainings held every year by the ASQ developers. With on-site training, you’ll decide where you’d like to hold the seminar and what your program wants to learn, and we’ll collaborate with you to select a date that works for you and our expert speakers.

Whatever your needs, there’s an option for you!

As desired, trainers can also describe the research behind each tool and provide information about current and future research topics (how well tools identify children with autism).

    What ASQ Users are Saying

    “What I love about the ASQ is that it allows our staff to catch delays quickly and allows us to get our clients the early intervention programs that they sometimes need. In many cases [ASQ] helps us catch children up before they start kindergarten, therefore providing children with the start that they deserve.

    Sharon Gee, Supervisor, Healthy Families Niagara
