The Power of a Simple Donation

Whether it’s helping a child realize their full potential or giving a family a new start
your donation always makes an impact in the community.

When our community–our village–works together we will improve the lives of families. We create a safe environment to nurture future strong healthy generations.

$10/month – will feed children and families nutritious snacks and meals at our programs.

$20/month – will help remove barriers that are preventing people from leaving abusive relationships.

$50/month – will help ensure mental health and bereavement supports are accessible at Families First.

Help us help you by taking the Ages and Stages Questionnaire

Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ)

Fort Saskatchewan

Click on the link below to complete Ages and Stages Questionnaire for your child. This screening tool gives you a snapshot of where your child is in their development based on their age. The results help us identify any development delays and, most importantly, celebrate the milestones your child achieves going forward. This tool relies on you as the expert about your child.

There are two kinds of questionnaires:

Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ-3)

This provides you information about your child across five developmental areas:

communication, gross motor, fine motor, problem-solving, personal-social

Ages and Stages Questionnaire: Social Emotional (ASQ: SE-2)

This provides you information about your child’s social and emotional development.
