Developmental Screenings

The FRC offers the Ages & Stages Questionnaires (ASQ-3 and ASQ-SE) to assess developmental progress in children between the ages of one month to 5 1/2 years. The developmental screening tools identify a child’s strengths, catches possible delays, and celebrates developmental and social-emotional milestones.
