Welcome to the Help Me Grow Developmental Screening Program!

Help Me Grow is a free service for families to support the development, learning, and behavior of their children ages birth to five.  We help families learn about their child’s development through a questionnaire called the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ).

The ASQ is a great way to track your child’s development. You can learn about your child’s strengths. You can learn if your child needs extra support in any areas.  You will have information you need to help prepare your child for school – it is never too early to start!

When you enter your child’s information below, you will be directed to the questionnaire.  It is easy to complete and takes about 20 minutes. Trained staff will review your results and contact you within 1 – 2 weeks.

If you need assistance, call us Monday – Friday from 9am – 5pm at 888-510-1211.  We are happy to help!

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!
