Our goal is to have programs present on the success they have had in the last year of working with ASQ. This may include response rates, promotional materials you have developed, unique ways of engaging families and how you have supported children post-screenings.

All programs can work with their designated Coach on developing your presentation to share virtually with programs. Early Leaders, Family Resource Networks and Home Visitation Agencies may request support from a Coach to help them develop a plan to share information by emailing
