Psychoeducational Profile: Third Edition

The third edition of the Psychoeducational Profile allows you to assess the skills and behaviors of children with Autism and communicative disabilities who function at a developmental age level of 6 months to 7 years.

How to Use the Asssessment
The profile resulting from the PEP-3 graphically charts uneven and idiosyncratic development, emerging skills, and Autistic behavioral characteristics. Individually administered in 45 to 90 minutes the PEP-3 meets the need for an assessment tool to assist in educational programming for children ages 3 through 5 with disabilities and is particularly useful in planning for older students’ Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).

The PEP-3 includes a Caregiver Report that asks the parent/ caregiver to estimate the child’s developmental level compared with typical children. The report consists of three subtests: Problem Behaviors, Personal Self-Care, and Adaptive Behavior. It has been shown to help orient teachers to a student’s developmental inconsistencies and provides professionals with information needed for thorough and complete planning. The Object Kit includes all toys and materials needed to administer the test except for food, drink, and a light switch.
