Hackney launches the ages and stages questionnaire
Homerton launched the Ages and Stages questionnaire-3 (ASQ) as part of the Healthy Child
Programme two year review at a conference held recently in the Homerton Education Centre. Over a
150 health visitors, early year’s staff and representatives from the childminding service attended the
event and deemed it a great success.
Homerton Health Visiting Services along with Hackney Learning Trust are national leaders in
developing and implementing the integrated 2 year review. Homerton health visitors have worked
closely in partnership with Hackney Learning Trust and the City of London for the past four years
prior to the Department of Health announcement that all health providers will have to provide
integrated reviews from September 2015.
The ASQ-3 is a parent completed parent tool developed in America to assess the
development of children between 2 months and 5 years. In this country it will be used to gain
information for population monitoring. The ASQ-3 will be piloted with area F providers and rolled out
across the borough for all the two year reviews in June of this year.
