A Real Success

DCYF is the lead agency for state-funded services that support children and families to build resilience and health, and to improve educational outcomes. We accomplish this by partnering with state and local agencies, tribes, and other organizations in communities across Washington. We focus on supporting children and families at their most vulnerable points, giving them the tools they need to succeed.

Brain science tells us that laying a strong foundation, early in life, critically impacts healthy development. The science also tells us that addressing trauma, especially at critical transition points in the lives of youth, helps ensure a successful transition into adulthood. To truly give all children the great start in school and energy they deserve, DCYF was created to be a comprehensive agency exclusively dedicated to the social, emotional, and physical well-being of children, youth, and families — an agency that prioritizes early learning, prevention, and early intervention at critical points along the age continuum from birth through adolescence.

Perfect Execution

The Ages & Stages Questionnaires®, Third Edition (ASQ®-3) is a developmental screening tool that pinpoints developmental progress in children between the ages of one month to 5 ½ years. Its success lies in its parent-centric approach and inherent ease-of-use—a combination that has made it the most widely used developmental screener across the globe.

Evidence shows that the earlier development is assessed—the greater the chance a child has to reach his or her potential. Learn more about ASQ-3.
