Through hands-on applied family studies and role plays, participants delve more deeply into the administration, scoring, interpretation, and sensitive communication of screening results, as well as practice talking to families about community referrals and follow-up. In addition, trainers will facilitate activities and discussion to explore cultural considerations for using the screening tool(s). 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).
The Comprehensive seminar includes the following topics: Engaging Parents, What is Screening, Features, Scoring the ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2, Introducing the ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2 to Caregivers, Score Interpretation, Follow-Up Recommendations, and Discussing Results with Caregivers. Each segment of the training will include one case study per tool.
Speakers will work with sites to individualize the training with specific areas of focus (home visiting, childcare settings, age groups, interagency coordination, implementation planning) and/or to meet the needs of more advanced users.
During the 2-day seminar, participants will learn
- the role of developmental screening in early childhood assessment
- features of each tool
- about the administration, scoring, and interpretation of screening results,
- how to communicate sensitively with families and talk about community referrals and follow-up, and
- the history behind the tools as well as future research projects
Training is still available on the first edition of ASQ:SE-2 if desired.
