Does the ASQ-3 require utilizing adjusted age with both pre-term infants (e.g., 20 weeks, 0 days to 36 weeks, 6 days), as well as early term infants (e.g., 37 weeks, 0 days to 38 weeks, 6 days)?

Adjusted age is used when a child is born 3 or more weeks premature. When conducting research for ASQ-3, the authors used 39 weeks as a full-term pregnancy. A child born at 36 weeks of gestation or earlier would be considered premature and would need an adjusted age calculated until 2 years chronological age. Some programs consider 38 or 40 weeks as a full-term pregnancy, which is also fine.
