ASQ-3TM and ASQ:SE Training

One priority of the Kansas Initiative for Developmental Ongoing Screening (KIDOS) is to develop a well-trained workforce by increasing the state of Kansas’s capacity to provide training on the use of the Ages and Stages Questionnaires®, Third Edition (ASQ-3TM) and Ages and Stages Questionnaires®: Social-Emotional (ASQ:SE). In March 2015, KIDOS hosted a Training of Trainers seminar provided by Brookes on Location in order to develop a training cadre able to deliver high quality training. These trainers are located throughout the state and are available to provide ASQ training to Kansas community partners. There is no charge for the training, although trainers may collect a modest fee to cover the cost of materials and lunch or refreshments (if provided).

Trainings are typically three hours in length. Topics covered during a training may include how to:

  • implement the ASQ-3TM and ASQ:SE effectively,
  • score questionnaires and interpret results,
  • identify developmental warning signs,
  • discuss results sensitively with families,
  • understand the referral process, and
  • work with families from diverse cultural backgrounds
