Developmental Screening - ASQ & ASQ-SE
Bow Valley Parent Link Centres offer comprehensive developmental and social-emotional screening tools for families with children 0-5 years old. The ASQ and ASQ-SE screening tools determine those children that are typically developing and ones that require further assessment. Parents fill out the assessment on their own or with the help of a facilitator. Call 403 678-2535 in Canmore or 403 762-1116 in Banff to book your free appointment or visit a Parent Link Centre to pick up a screening tool for your child.
