Details

Local authority commissioners and health professionals can use these resources to track to what extent children aged 2 to and a half years in their local area are achieving the expected levels of development.

The data is collected from the health visitor reviews completed at 2 to 2 and a half years using the Ages and Stages Questionnaire 3 (ASQ-3). Public Health England (PHE) collects the data, which is submitted by local authorities on a voluntary basis.

The metrics presented are ‘the percentage of children who were at or above the expected level’ in these areas of development:

  • communication skills
  • gross motor skills
  • fine motor skills
  • problem solving skills
  • personal-social skills
  • all 5 areas of development

These data and commentaries also show variation at a local, regional and national level. This can help with planning, commissioning and improving local services.

Find guidance on using these statistics and other intelligence resources to help you make decisions about the planning and provision of child and maternal health services.

A ‘Feasibility study: developing the capability for population surveillance using indicators of child development outcomes aged 2 to 2 and a half years’ sets out how national child development outcome indicators can be developed to enable population surveillance of child development.
