The Department of Health is developing a population measure to show child development at 2-2½ years, to be included in the public health outcomes framework from 2015. Data for the measure will be collected using the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3™), which is a parent-completed tool.
Health visiting teams will therefore need to use ASQ-3™ as part of their HCP reviews at age 2-2½.
The e-learning modules are designed to support health visitors or community nursery nurses using the ASQ-3™ and illustrate how the tool fits into the wider HCP review.
Incorporating video clips from real-life 2-2½ year reviews, the modules cover the practicalities of using the ASQ-3™ and the areas of child development included in the measure, as well as best practice on scoring questionnaires and communicating with parents about ASQ-3™.
The ASQ-3™ e-learning modules are designed to be useful to all those involved in delivery of the HCP reviews at age 2-2½.
