For children ages 2 months to 60 months, ASQ is a developmental check-up that can give you a guideline to tell if your children are developing typically. It is a great tool to know what activities you might try next to support your child’s development and to see if additional support might be needed.

An ASQ and ASQ-SE looks at:

  • gross motor skills,
  • fine motor skills,
  • problem solving skills,
  • communication,
  • personal social skills,
  • social-emotional competencies.

  • Baby and Me: This program allows parents of children (newborn to 12 months) to come together to learn about the rewards and challenges of parenting. It is a great way to address concerns, gather information, and make new friends.
  • Baby Signing: This program teaches parents how to teach their child, as young as 9 months old, to communicate their needs through sign language. Babies will learn to sign when they’re hungry, want more, or when they’re finished with their meal. They will also learn to sign if they’re too cold, too hot, or that they need a hug.
  • Caregiver Cafe: Come out for a 6-week program to meet new friends, play with your child and be part of meaningful conversations about child development and parenting. 
  • Infant Massage: In this program, parents learn infant (newborn to 12 months) massage techniques. Massaging your baby can help them relax and sleep better, promote strong parent-child relationships, and relieve colic or gassy spells.
