Welcome to the Ages and Stages Questionnaire screen provided by Butler Early Access Network (BEAN)! This screen will give you a snapshot at your child's current development. You are encouraged to share results with your child's pediatrician.  BEAN's mission is to promote universal developmental screenings in early childhood across Butler County. BEAN is also a referral and resource hub for parents of children 0-6 and can provide assistance with referrals to community services and resources.

Because your child's first 5 years of life are so important, we want to help you provide the best start for your child. You've been invited to participate in the Ages & Stages Questionnaires, Third Edition (ASQ-3), to help you keep track of your child's development. The questionnaire may be provided every 2-, 4- or 6-month period. You will be asked to answer questions about some things your child can and cannot do. The questionnaire includes questions about your child's communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal social skills.

Please enter your child's birth date and the number of weeks he or she was born premature below to start the screening. Please note that the information you enter into this website is secure and cannot be seen or accessed by anyone other than the program employees who have invited you to participate in this screening.

We look forward to your participation in ASQ-3!

(put "0" if not premature)

I have read the provided information about the Ages & Stages questionnaires, and I wish to have my child participate in the online screening program. I will fill out the questionnaire about my child's development and promptly submit the completed questionnaire through this Family Access online questionnaire completion system.

I give permission for the screening organization to speak with the programs checked above and to share my contact information with other programs that may be able to help my family.


South Central Mental Health Counseling Center (SCMHCC) has purchased access to a web-based data management system, ASQ Online. To facilitate coordination and sharing of information between early childhood partners at the local level, partners have established a single ASQ Online account. This agreement describes the sharing of data between these local partners.




Early childhood system partners are collaborating to coordinate, improve, and track developmental screenings and referrals for infants and toddlers in Butler County. It is important to show how well programs and systems are helping children and their families in Butler County, and it is important to show that the programs and systems improve children’s readiness for school over time. This can only be done by getting information from children and families in these programs over time.




“Data” is personally identifiable demographic information as well as information derived from a series of questions assessing the behavior and communication skills of children and is used to identify signs of developmental delay.


 How Your Data May be Used


By signing this agreement, You understand the Data you share will be available to project members of the Butler Early Access Network (BEAN) at South Central Mental Health, and will be shared with early childhood partners through the Butler Early Childhood Task Force: BEAN Referral Committee.  The agreement requires informed consent from parents or legal guardians in order for data to be used by BEAN/SCMHCC and the BEAN Referral Committee:


  1. To track children birth to five for their risk factors, referrals, programs attended, screening results, and, ultimately, kindergarten readiness.
  2. To generate summary level reports for sharing with local early childhood partners for purposes of continuous quality improvement of programs and services.

  3. To generate summary level reports that can be shared with current and potential funders, such as the Department for Children and Families (DCF), Kansas Children’s Cabinet and Trust Fund (KCCTF), Kansas Department of Education (KSDE), and Kansas Department of Health and Environment (KDHE) at the state level.

  4. To coordinate and refer to services and programs in the community upon review of Data from the Butler Early Childhood Task Force: BEAN Referral Committee members. Child information will be reviewed and parent/guardian contacted by BEAN representative to assist with potential referral to services and/or resources.
