GREAT BARRINGTON, Mass. — CHP Family Services invites parents with young children to participate in the Ages and Stages Questionnaire(ASQ), a free developmental screening tool for children up to age 6.
The ASQ will be offered Nov. 18, 10:30-noon at the Stockbridge Library. To register, email, or call (413) 528-0457. A CHP playgroup leader will administer this brief questionnaire.
The questionnaire is tailored to a child's age and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. The ASQ is offered in several languages, including Spanish.
The results can help parents understand their child's developmental progress, identify strengths and pinpoint any significant delays in development. The results can help parents identify next steps, if needed, for their child.
"Developmental screening is always good, but Covid-19 has impacted many children who have had limited social time, or whose day care or pre-school was closed," said Kim Waterman, CHP program coordinator. "This isolation can impact development, and the ASQ can be a first step in finding out if a child might need extra support."
Parents (or caregivers) and children who participate in the Nov. 18 screening will be given a free take-home craft project.
More information about the Ages and Stages Questionnaire can be found here.
