Make the First Five Count

Make the First Five Count is Easterseals FREE child development screening tool to help measure and keep track of your child’s growth and development.

Are you curious about how your child is doing? Do you have concerns about your child’s development? Then take one or both of our free screenings.

Take the ASQ-3

To look at key developmental areas: communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem solving and personal social skills. You will be asked to answer questions about things your child can and cannot do.

Tome el ASQ-3 

para mirar áreas clave del desarrollo: comunicación, habilidades de motor grueso y motor fino, resolución de problemas y habilidades sociales personales. Se le pedirá que responda preguntas sobre cosas que su hijo/a puede y no puede hacer.

Take the ASQ SE-2

For a more in depth look at a child’s social and emotional skills. This survey includes questions about your child’s ability to calm down, take direction, follow rules, follow daily routine, demonstrate feelings and interact with others.

Tomar el ASQ SE-2

Para una visión más profunda de las habilidades sociales y emocionales de un niño.  Esta encuesta incluye preguntas sobre la capacidad de su hijo para calmarse, tomar instrucciones, seguir reglas, seguir la rutina diaria, demostrar sentimientos e interactuar con los demás.

Based on your responses, the results will help you see if your child’s progress is on track and alert you to any potential concerns. 

By detecting developmental delays early, you have the power to change lives and educational outcomes for children! If delays are identified, Easter Seals DuPage & Fox Valley can offer the support needed to be school-ready and build a foundation for a lifetime of learning. Research proves that when children receive the right treatment and therapy they need before age five, they are more prepared to learn alongside their peers, build lifelong skills and achieve their dreams.


We encourage you to rescreen your child in order to monitor and celebrate their development.

The ASQ-3 (developmental screening tool) may be taken every 2-, 4- or 6- month period.

The ASQ SE-2 (social-emotional screening tool) may be taken every 6 months until your child is 3 years old, and then once a year at 4 years and 5 years. 

Easterseals is here to be your partner in raising a healthy and happy child
