Early Childhood

From screening and assessment tools to practical classroom guides, our resources empower you to support the healthy development of all young children and get them ready to learn.

Whether you’re a teacher, a specialist, a clinician, or a professor preparing the next generation of educators and providers, we can help you reach your ultimate goal: better outcomes for every young child and family.

Our resources help you partner with parents to check babies’ development in their first months of life, boost young children’s progress in key areas, and create early childhood classrooms that welcome and support every young learner.

Developmental Screening, Assessment, and Intervention

As the publisher of ASQ® and other trusted, widely used tools, we’re the leader in developmental screening, assessment, and intervention. Our bestselling tools and curricula help you partner with parents to check young children’s development, boost their progress in key areas, and celebrate their exciting developmental milestones.

Social-emotional development and learning

Nurturing social-emotional development—and identifying potential challenges in the early years—makes a critical difference in the lives of young children. We help you with every key element of fostering healthy social-emotional development, including detecting delays early, implementing the evidence-based Pyramid Model, and helping kids understand and deal with emotions.


Early language and literacy development

Strong early language and literacy skills set the stage for later success in school and in life. Our textbooks, tools, and curricula fully prepare you to help close the 30 million word gap some children experience, support dual language learners, identify kids who need extra help with early literacy skills, and put all young children on the path to reading success.
