Assessment tools

During the home visits around the 18th month, home visitors administer the ASQ to increase mothers’ awareness of their child’s developmental status and need for early intervention services, if necessary. If ASQ results prompt concern about the child’s development, both the mother and the child’s health care provider receive summary letters.
