Scoring ASQ-3 and interpreting the results is easier with this updated training DVD, which shows professionals how to use the #1 screening system accurately and sensitively. Viewers first get a brief overview of the ASQ-3 questionnaires and the screening process. Then they'll watch a home visitor guiding a mother as she fills out a questionnaire for an infant and tries the ASQ-3 tasks with her child. Through footage of specific tasks and close-ups of sample questions and scores, ASQ-3 users will discover how to : use the revised third edition scoring sheets; convert parent responses into point values; compare the results with the cutoff scores; use the ASQ-3 monitoring zone to determine if a child's progress should be monitored in one or more areas; interpret parent responses on the Overall section of ASQ-3; decide if a referral for further assessment is needed. Ideal for early interventionists, home visitors, pediatricians, teachers, and other early childhood practitioners, this DVD is a critical professional development tool no ASQ-3 user should be without.
