Watch for milestones during everyday moments! Every 3 to 6 months, check your child’s progress with a questionnaire.

Ready for a snapshot of your child’s development? Help Me Grow Washington offers the free Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) to families in Washington State. The ASQ allows you to discover the skills your child is learning and developing, and find out ways to support their growth. It only takes 10-15 minutes to complete, then one of our Care Coordinators will call you to talk about the results.

We can suggest activities to support your child’s growth at home and in the community or, if your child needs extra support, we can connect you to resources and specialists who can help.

What to Expect

When you click the buttons above, you’ll go to an online ASQ. Based on your child’s age, you will be asked about your child’s ability to complete certain activities, such as “Can your child stand on one foot?” After you submit your answers online, our Care Coordinators will score the ASQ and contact you with results within one week. We will offer suggestions for games and activities to do with your child to practice emerging skills. We will send another screen every 3 to 6 months, so you can continue to learn about and support your child’s growth.

Give the Best Start
to Your Child

Because your child’s first five years of life are so important, we want to help you provide the best start for your child. The ASQ is a great way to make sure that your infant, toddler or preschooler is healthy and ready to learn and grow. It’s also a fun way to spend quality time with your child and learn what they can do! The ASQ does not diagnose a delay or disability, and is not meant to replace a health check-up with your child’s doctor. However, it may show if there is a need for further evaluation.
