The Department of Health (DH) is asking all health visiting teams to use ASQ:SE-2™ alongside ASQ-3™ as part of two year reviews from 1 October 2016 as set out in the Public Health England 0-19 service specification.

DH funded a British English adaptation of the 2nd edition of ASQ:SE-2™  and the distribution of one copy on CD-ROM to each health visiting provider in England in April 2016.

An e-learning tool has been developed by Health Education England, the Department of Health, e-Learning for Healthcare  and the University of Hertfordshire which will prepare health professionals for the introduction of ASQ:SE-2™  and is now available.

For further information around ASQ:SE-2™ , please contact DH at [email protected]
