The question keeps arising: What is the cutoff?
So, a few things to remember:
1) If a child scores below 75 on the Brigance, or over 15 on the ASQ, ask the teacher if there are any concerns.
2) If a child scores beyond the cutoff, then we consult with teachers and parents to consider whether an evaluation is necessary.
3) Following are the ASQ screening cut-offs for each age:
6 MONTH INFANTS 3-8 MONTHS 45
12 MONTH CHILDREN 9-14 MONTHS 48
18 MONTH CHILDREN 15-20 MONTHS 50
24 MONTH/2YR CHILDREN 21-26 MONTHS 50
30 MONTHS CHILDREN 27-32 MONTHS 57
36 MONTH/3YR CHILDREN 33-41 MONTHS 59
48 MONTH/4YR CHILDREN 42-53 MONTHS 70
60 MONTH/5YR CHILDREN 54-65 MONTHS 70

You will reach a page that looks like this?
For more than 30 years, educators have trusted the BRIGANCE family of
assessment, screening, and instructional tools to help them meet the needs
of their students. And now with the brand-new IED III and Screens III for 2013,
BRIGANCE is more comprehensive than ever before.
At the bottom of the page you will see:
Click on the bold “free tools” and then the bold “screens/Scoring Tool.”
You will then be prompted o insert the child’s information and how many answers the child responded correctly to, and you will see the total score, the cutoff, and whether the child scored above or below cut off.
It’s a good idea to print the scoring sheet and insert it into the child’s education folder together with the handwritten Brigance Scoresheet.
