  • Surveys: 

Remember to visit summitpediatrics.com before your visit to check for any surveys.

  1. Edinburgh Postnatal Depression Scale  (See previous posts for detailed explanation.)

  1. Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) 6 months


The Ages & Stages Questionnaire (ASQ) is a developmental screening tool used to assess your child’s development periodically through 5 years old. The parent completes the age specific questionnaire before the visit to help the pediatrician gauge the child’s development in five domains: Communication, Fine Motor, Gross Motor, Personal-Social and Problem-solving. Please, allow 15-20 minutes to complete the survey. It is helpful to have your child with you when completing to better answer some of the questions. 


  • Next routine well visit: 9 months old
