ASQ-3 Screening

Coming home today for some students is the ASQ-3 screening.  If you have not filled one out or your child is being re-screened, there will be one in your child's yellow folder.   You know your child best!  Please take 10-15 minutes to complete the ASQ-3 and return it to school.  This tool helps us identify where are child is at developmentally and what we need to focus on to help your child in areas that are of a concern.  In some cases, the screening tool will identify areas that may need to be followed up on by a doctor.  The tool is extremely helpful in making sure that we have accurate information about each child so that we can best prepare all for kindergarten.  Thank you!  

Below is a link to a app which tracks development.  This may be useful to you if you have concerns about your child's development.
