ASQ - Description 

Ages & Stages Questionaire for Social Emotional Development (ASQ SE) 

ASQ:SE is a screening tool that identifies infants and young children whose social and emotional development requires further evaluation to determine if referral for intervention services is necessary. A high score (typically above 60) indicates need.

The tool can capture the perspective of children and young people, their parents and teachers. The 25 items in the SDQ comprise 5 scales of 5 items each. The scales include:

Parental Stress Index (PSI-4)

Designed to evaluate the magnitude of stress in the parent–child system, the fourth edition of the popular PSI is a 120-item inventory that focuses on three major domains of stress: child characteristics, parent characteristics, and situational/demographic life stress. 

Features and benefits

  • Commonly used as a diagnostic or screening measure to evaluate the parenting system. 

  • Helps identify at-risk or problem areas in the child's or parent's behavior. 

  • Two domain scores and 13 subscales facilitate both treatment planning in relation to problem areas and the evaluation of the effectiveness of interventions. 

  • Useful in family system evaluations such as custody evaluations or at-risk for dysfunctional parenting.
