The Parent-Child Interaction Scales (PCI) Scales are valid and reliable assessments for measuring parent-child interaction, using a well-developed set of observable behaviours that describe caregiver/parent child interaction in either a feeding or teaching situation.

The scales are widely used in both clinical practice and research with families and young children and as pre- and post-test measures.
