What is it?

Parent-completed questionnaires that reliably identify young children at risk for social or emotional difficulties.

Which social-emotional areas does it screen?

Self-regulation, compliance, communication, adaptive behaviors, autonomy, affect, and interaction with people.  New behavior and communication items elicit parent concerns that may point to Autism, and early communication issues.  It also include a new “Monitoring Zone” to identify children who are close to the cutoff, and should be monitored and rescreened. 

What age range does it cover?

1–72 months.  It reliably screens children as young as 1 month, for earlier implementation of critical interventions.  This new edition screens through kindergarten, with no gaps, helping guide the transition to school.

How many items are there?

About 30 items per questionnaire.

How long does it take?

Each questionnaire takes 10–15 minutes for parents to complete and just 2–3 minutes for professionals to score.

Is it valid and reliable?

Yes. ASQ:SE-2 has been investigated with 14,074 diverse children across the age intervals and their families. Test-retest reliability is 89%; internal consistency is 84%; and validity is 83%.

The ASQ:SE-2™ questionnaires are the most cost-effective, reliable way to screen young children for social-emotional issues in the first 6 years of life. Now in a NEW second edition, the 9 age-appropriate questionnaires (2, 6, 12, 18, 24, 30, 36, 48, and 60 months) effectively screen 7 key social-emotional areas: self-regulation, compliance, adaptive functioning, autonomy, affect, social-communication, and interaction with people.

How to Use ASQ:SE-2 Questionnaires
Fast and easy to use, ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires take just 10–15 minutes for parents to complete. First, parents fill out the questionnaire, checking the response that best describes their child’s behavior: often or always, sometimes, or rarely or never. Clear questions help parents complete the questionnaires quickly and accurately, and open-ended questions ask about any related parental concerns. Professionals score the questionnaire in just 2–3 minutes, and then transfer a total score to a simple summary sheet along with any concerns the parent has noted. The summary sheet, a visual indicator of social emotional development and parent concerns, indicates whether any followup should be considered.

  • Total scores that fall in the graph’s range of Risk (dark shaded zone) indicate the child may need further evaluation.
  • NEW! A total score in the new “monitoring” zone (light shaded area) helps identify children that may require followup actions based on items of concern. Professionals can work with parents to address behaviors of concern and provide social-emotional development information sheets and activities to help their child make progress before the next screening.
  • Scores outside the shaded zones mean the child’s social-emotional development appears to be developing on schedule. Parents can monitor their child’s development by rescreening at the next ASQ:SE-2 interval.
