The ASQ-TRAK Developmental Screening Tool

Information obtained from developmental screening improves our understanding of children’s development and informs program planning - enabling targeted learning activities to be developed for individual children. The process of doing the ASQ-TRAK is fun and very engaging, involving parents in their child’s ongoing development.

The ASQ-TRAK is an adapted version of seven of the 21 ASQ®-3 questionnaires. A number of modifications were made in its development. The ASQ-TRAK:

  • is shorter, having excluded the general questions.
  • is written in plain English.
  • includes an explanation of the overall questionnaire and of each domain.
  • has illustrations for every item.
  • has colour-illustrated flip charts to support caregiver engagement and administration by interview.
  • has items that have been modified to be more culturally appropriate and draw on materials that are available in remote communities.
  • is designed to be administered by interview rather than caregivers self-completing a questionnaire. This encourages the caregiver and child to demonstrate each item.
