Developmental Screenings

The library offers free developmental screenings for children ages one month to five years. Screenings can help identify your child’s strengths as well as any areas (speech, physical ability, social skills, problem-solving skills, social-emotional development) where your child may need support.

All developmental screenings at the library use the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ).


What is the ASQ?
Ages and Stages Questionnaires (ASQ) are short screenings designed to help caregivers check on their child’s development. It is easy to complete at home and can help identify strengths and milestones that your child has met.

When can you do the ASQ with your child?
The ASQ can be done any time and is meant for children one month up to five years.

How can the library help?
Our librarians are trained in using ASQ screenings. They can help determine which questionnaire is right for your child, and they can provide the forms necessary to complete it. They will also compile a summary based on the completed form and discuss the results with you. The screening is free!
