She picked up a toy off the floor by bending over and holding her balance. The total score of the baby’s abilities for this section was a 60.

The baby scored a 45 on this section due to not being able to complete three out of the six activities. She was not able to turn the page of the book, stack toys, nor was she able to stack blocks. However, the baby was able to pick up her snacks by using her finger and thumb. She threw a ball back at her mother when directed. Also, she attempted to draw on paper using a crayon. Even though the baby did not complete the three tasks, according to the ASQ form, she is still on track with her development. Problem Solving: The fourth section of the ASQ form was “Problem Solving”. This section assessed the baby’s ability to place items in a box, place Cheerios in a small bottle, scribble, and move objects with a stick. The baby was able to place bigger items in a box, but was unable to place the smaller items in the bottle. She was also able to scribble on paper but was unable to move objects with a stick, even though she attempted to hit the object with the stick. The baby scored a 40 on this section, which is still in the correct range for her age groups development.
