When your child is between 10 and 12 months old you may receive an 'Ages and Stages' (ASQ: 3) questionnaire in the post, with a prepaid envelope to complete and return which will be reviewed by a health professional.
If the results indicate that a further follow up is necessary we'll invite you and your child to an appointment.
If you would like support to complete your child’s ASQ Questionnaires please contact our advice line.
Please take a moment to view the one year page in their Personal Child Health Record ’red book’ which highlights the many new skills they may be developing at this age.
Your child will also be due their 1 year immunisations which you will need to arrange with your GP surgery.
