When your child is between 10 and 12 months old you will receive an Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) questionnaire in the post with a prepaid envelope.
Please complete and return the questionnaire which will be reviewed by a health professional. If a follow-up review is needed, we will invite you and your child to an appointment at a local health centre or Family Centre.

The advice line is available on 01883 340 922 from 8am to 5pm, Monday to Friday (excluding bank holidays) and provides support on all aspects of child health, development and parenting.
