One of the most asked questions by parents is, “Is my child developing normally?” There are many different layers to this question. Luckily there are professionals that can help us as parents. So common is this subject that many resources have been developed for parents to answer the question as well as help in working with temporary or permanent issues of development.

If your a parent, chances are that you have
completed an ASQ (Ages and Stages Questionare).
But did you know that the ASQ was originally
developed as a parent tool.
Every parent wants to know their child is developing
properly. So, the ASQ was developed for parents
to complete based on the observations of their child.
The State of Oregon has the site http://asqoregon.com here you can register and complete an online ASQ. There are age appropriate activities available for you and your child after you complete the questionare. You can also access help if you have any questions or would like to seek more assistance.
The Center for Parenting Education has many pages of great resources, online education and articles.
