The parents of one of my pediatric patients are unhappy with answering online questionnaires about their child. They asked who had access to their child’s information, if the results were used in any sort of research, and if the results are reported anywhere. Can you share information addressing patient privacy? 

The full [Privacy Policy for ASQ Online can be viewed here][1]. A parent completing questionnaires through ASQ Family Access is referred to as a Family Access Authorized User in this policy. The ASQ developers are early interventionists, researchers, and educators engaged in ongoing work to improve ASQ to better enab…

Is ASQ-3 technically sound?

ASQ-3 has a standardization with an unrivaled sample that closely mirrors the U.S. population in geography and ethnicity and includes children of all socioeconomic statuses. The sample includes 15,138 children whose parents completed 18,232 questionnaires. Reliability, validity, sensitivity, and specificity are all ex…

We screen children with ASQ:SE-2 and then rescreen them again in 4 months. How much of a difference in scores we would have to see to call it an official improvement? For example, we had a child's score go from 160 to 135. Is that a significant difference?

The developers have not conducted research comparing scores across time to determine what constitutes a significant difference. However, there are programs that used the ASQ:SE for progress monitoring and they have suggested a 25 point decrease in total score as an improvement.

Is there research on the validity and reliability of different administration methods of the ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2?

The developers have examined the difference between completing the questionnaires on paper and online and found that the results are equivalent. The research was published in [Infants & Young Children][1]. Questionnaire administration via telephone has not been examined by a research study. However, a lot of data col…

Is ASQ-3 considered IRB-approved?

Each individual research study using ASQ needs to be individually approved with a specific institutional review board (IRB). A tool is not given blanket approval to be used in research studies across institutions. Numerous IRB- approved studies have been completed using ASQ at many universities and hospitals.

For a research study, I am recruiting parents of children under 5 years of age to complete the ASQ:SE-2. Since the tool has multiple age intervals with differing numbers of items, how can I compare ASQ:SE-2 scores for all children in that study?

Because there are different numbers of items on each age interval (and thus varying score ranges), you can compute an average item score for each child and compare those average scores. The average item score is calculated by dividing the total score by the number of scored items on that interval. The chart on page 36…

Can I use some of the questions from ASQ-3 or ASQ:SE-2 in a tool that I am creating?

You need written permission from Brookes Publishing before adapting, translating, excerpting, or reformatting the ASQ questionnaires, User’s Guides, any related materials, or any part thereof in any way. To apply for permission, please complete a [Permission Request Form][1]. The permissions process takes several week…

Our local providers use ASQ with the help of interpreters. How do we really know that the interpretation is accurate or the norms appropriate?

Successful use of ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2 with interpreters requires interpreters that are familiar with both the language and culture of a given population. This article describes best practices for[ using interpreters][1]. In terms of norms, because ASQ-3 and ASQ:SE-2 were normed on large groups of children in the Unite…

I’d like to share the data I’ve collected with ASQ:SE-2 with the authors to help further their research and the development of future editions. How do I do that?

The authors of the ASQ:SE-2 are always pleased to receive blind data. Please email [[email protected] ][1]with your data and complete contact information, which will be shared only with the authors and not used by Brookes Publishing or any other party. [1]: mailto:[email protected]%20
