Brief Review of Psychometric Properties and Clinical Utility of the Ages and Stages Questionnaires, Third Edition for Evaluating Pediatric Development

Published:February 07, 2017DOI:
      The Ages and Stages Questionnaires, Third Edition (ASQ-3) was developed for use in pediatric developmental screening to determine the need for further evaluation of developmental delay.1. 2. This screening tool is a system of 21 age-specific questionnaires for children 1 to 66 months of age.1. 2. The ASQ-3 measures 5 developmental domains: gross motor, fine motor, communication, problem-solving, and personal-social, with items rated as typical development, need for monitoring, and need for further assessment. A professional or caregiver can complete the ASQ-3, allowing this tool the potential to be completed by a parent or caregiver before being seen by a clinician. The ASQ-3 has shown to be a reliable and valid instrument for determining the need for further developmental evaluation. The ASQ-3 was found to have excellent test-retest reliability among 4 of the 5 domains measured by the tool.1. 3. This measure has shown to have both excellent interrater reliability4 and excellent concurrent validity in children >30 months of age.3 The ASQ-3 has been translated and validated into multiple languages,5 and studies have shown both the disadvantages3 and the effectiveness of the measure when translated and culturally adapted for use in various countries.6. 7.
