This convenient Starter Kit includes everything you need to start screening children with face=Calibri size=2>ASQ®:SE-2: a box of 9 photocopiable paper masters of the questionnaires and scoring sheets, a CD-ROM with printable PDF questionnaires, the ASQ:SE-2 User's Guide, and a free ASQ:SE-2 Quick Start Guide. 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. - Sturdy, convenient new box with a handle for easy portability. The Starter Kit is part of the ASQ:SE-2 screening system. ASQ:SE-2 is the NEW edition of the bestselling screener trusted to uncover possible social-emotional issues as early as possible during the crucial first 6 years of life. The 9 age-appropriate ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires effectively screen 7 key developmental areas: self-regulation, compliance, adaptive functioning, autonomy, affect, social-communication, and interaction with people. Convenient, easy online completion and management for ASQ:SE-2 questionnaires are both available with the purchase of ASQ Online.
ASQ:SE-2 has more areas where parents can document specific concerns or issues in detail. That information is critical for the professionals scoring face=Calibri size=2>ASQ®:SE-2¦ In general, the advanced scoring system [with the addition of the monitoring zone] makes ASQ:SE-2 a stronger screening tool, and with the ability to calculate allowable exceptions due to diversity [with adjusted scoring], it is much more parent friendly.
