I would prefer ASQ-3 Learning Activities that can be used with both boys and girls. For example, one of the activities in Gross Motor 0-2 months says, "...while your baby is on his tummy, lie beside him..." What if I am giving this activity to the parents of a girl? Do you have an option that uses "him or her"?

In ASQ-3 Learning Activities, the genders are alternated in the activities with the goal of enhancing ease of use; professionals do not need to choose between female & male versions of the sheets.

We recognize the importance of being inclusive, and we are planning to have a gender neutral option in the next iteration of A…
