ASQ-3 Developmental Screening and
ASQ:SE-2 Social-Emotional Screening
For our current families:
Avenue Preschool offers parents of currently enrolled children the opportunity to participate in an annual developmental screening. The developmental screening tools we offer are The Ages and Stages-3 (ASQ-3) and The Ages and Stages:SE-2 (ASQ:SE-2) Questionnaires. These screening tools have been approved by the State of Delaware, Department of Education. Please refer to your Avenue Preschool Family Handbook, and also the information sent home with your child for further details about the screening tool and process.
