CCDF Child Care Providers attend Introduction to ASQ-3 Training

On Saturday, October 29, 2022, twenty child care providers from Saipan and Tinian participated in a training on Introduction to Ages and Stages Questionnaires – 3rd Edition. The training was facilitated by Grace Mallari, Evergreen Learning Training and Development Specialist, together with Erlaine Evangelista, Evergreen Learning Coach. This training session was held at Evergreen Learning Training Center in Chalan Kanoa. 

The Ages and Stages Questionnaire – Third Edition (ASQ-3) is a series of 21 parent-completed questionnaires designed to screen the developmental performance of children between the ages of one month to 5 ½ years. It is a comprehensive, reliable screening tool that measures development in 5 domains: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving, and personal-social.

During this 5-hour long training, participants who had not been previously trained on the ASQ-3 learned the purpose and benefits of ASQ-3 as a screening tool. Participants also engaged in hands-on exercises on how to administer, interpret, and communicate screening results. 

This training is made possible through funding from the Department of Health and Human Services, Office of Child Care, and CNMI Child Care and Development Fund (CCDF) Program under the Department of Community and Cultural Affairs.
