The Psychoeducational Profile - Third Edition (PEP-3) assesses the skills and behaviours of children with autism and communicative disabilities who function between the ages of 6 months to 7 years.
The new edition PEP-3 now includes a Caregiver Report. This report utilises parent input and is completed prior to the administration of the assessment. The form asks the parent or caregiver to estimate the child's developmental level compared with typical children. This form has been shown to help orient teachers to a student's developmental inconsistencies.
The profile resulting from the PEP-3 graphically charts uneven and idiosyncratic development, emerging skills, and autistic behavioural characteristics.
The PEP-3 Caregiver Report Form is completed by parents or caregivers based on their daily observations of the child being assessed. They estimate the child's current developmental level in multiple areas, and the degree of problems in different diagnostic categories.
