Ages & Stages Questionnaires: Social-Emotional (ASQ:SE-2): A Parent-Completed Child Monitoring System for Social-Emotional Behaviors / Edition 2 available in Other Format
- Pub. Date:
- Brookes Publishing
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 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.
What's New in ASQ:SE-2
ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires are better than ever, with helpful new features like:
- New 2 month questionnaire: Reliably screen and start monitoring children as young as 1 month, so critical interventions can start earlier.
- Screen through kindergarten: Now you can screen children from 1–72 months with no gaps, so you can use ASQ:SE-2 through kindergarten and the transition to school.
- New behavior and communication items designed to elicit parent concerns that may point to autism and early communication issues.
- New data and cutoffs: ASQ:SE-2 is based on updated research and a large sample size of more than 14,000 diverse children.
- New monitoring zone that clearly identifies children who are close to the cutoff and should be monitored and rescreened.
- Questionnaire items revised and refined based on user feedback, to help parents provide the best responses.
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 childâ€™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 graphâ€™s range of risk (dark shaded zone) indicate the child may need further evaluation.
- NEW! A total score in the new â€œmonitoringâ€ 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 childâ€™s social-emotional development appears to be developing on schedule. Parents can monitor their childâ€™s development by rescreening at the next ASQ:SE-2 interval.
When you purchase a box of ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires, youâ€™ll get photocopiable master copies on paper and printable PDF master copies on CD-ROM—so you and your staff will always have the format you want, right at your fingertips.
Convenient, easy online completion and management for ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires are available with the purchase of ASQ® Online.

About the Author
Dr. Squires is Professor of Special Education, focusing on the field of early intervention/early childhood special education. She oversees research and outreach projects in the areas of developmental screening, implementation of screening systems, early identification of developmental delays, and the involvement of parents in monitoring their young childrenâ€™s development.
She is lead author of the Ages & Stages Questionnaires®, Third Edition (ASQ®-3; with D. Bricker; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2009), Ages & Stages Questionnaires®: Social-Emotional, Second Edition (ASQ®:SE-2; with D. Bricker and E. Twombly; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2015), and the Social-Emotional Assessment/Evaluation Measure (SEAM™), Research Edition (with D. Bricker, M. Waddell, K. Funk, J. Clifford, & R. Hoselton; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2014).
She has authored or coauthored more than 90 books, chapters, assessments, videotapes, and articles on developmental screening and early childhood disabilities. In 2013, she coauthored the book Developmental Screening in Your Community: An Integrated Approach for Connecting Children with Services (Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2013). Dr. Squires currently teaches doctoral-level courses in early intervention/special education and conducts research on comprehensive early identification and referral systems for preschool children.
Dr. Bricker served as Director of the Early Intervention Program at the Center on Human Development, University of Oregon, from 1978 to 2004. She was a professor of special education, focusing on the fields of early intervention and social-communication.
Her professional interests have addressed three major areas: early intervention service delivery approaches, curricula-based assessment and evaluation, and developmental-behavioral screening. Dr. Bricker's work in early intervention approaches has been summarized in two volumes: An Activity-Based Approach to Early Intervention, Fourth Edition (with J. Johnson & N. Rahn; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2015) and An Activity-Based Approach to Developing Young Childrenâ€™s Social Emotional Competence (with J. Squires; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2007).

Capt, K. Pretti- Frontczak, J. Johnson, K. Slentz, E. Straka, & M Waddell; Paul H. Brookes Publishing Co., 2004). This measure and curricula provides intervention personnel with a system for the comprehensive assessment of young children with results that link directly to curricular content and subsequent evaluation of child progress.
