Ages & Stages Questionnaires®: Social-Emotional, Second Edition (ASQ:SE-2)
Early identification of social-emotional challenges can make all the difference to a young child. Children who exhibit inappropriate and unacceptable behaviors are seen as “troubled” or even “disabled”.
The earlier a behavioral concern is identified, the greater the chance a child has for reaching his or her full potential in life. This is the driving force behind the PTI App version of Ages & Stages Questionnaires®: Social-Emotional, Second Edition (ASQ:SE-2™)—a parent-completed, highly reliable system focused solely on social and emotional development in young children. Accurately identifying behavior through ASQ:SE-2 paves the way for next steps—further assessment, specialized intervention or ongoing monitoring, for examples—to help children reach their fullest potential during their most formative early years.
With the typical ups and downs of young children’s emotions and behavior, delays or problems can be easily missed. And today, as more children are increasingly exposed to risk factors such as poverty or toxic stress, the likelihood of depression, anxiety, and anti-social behavior increases. There is tremendous opportunity during the first few years of a child’s life to identify and address potential social-emotional concerns. This is the heart of ASQ:SE-2.
This PTI App version of the assessment is an easy-to-use tool with all the advantages of ASQ-3—it’s cost-effective, parent-completed, and culturally sensitive. With questionnaire results (available in real-time), professionals can quickly recognize young children at risk for social or emotional difficulties, identify behaviors of concern to caregivers, and identify any need for further assessment.
To get a comprehensive look at a young child’s development, use ASQ:SE-2 in conjunction with ASQ-3 that will provide information on a child’s general functioning in communication, motor, and cognitive areas.
