This popular test allows you to assess the skills and behaviors of young children with autism and communication disabilities. Because it charts uneven and idiosyncratic development, emerging skills, and autistic behaviors, the PEP-3 is particularly useful in planning IEPs for school-age youngsters.
Domains measured by the PEP-3 reflect current research and clinical concerns, especially in the areas of social functioning and communication:
- Visual–Motor Imitation
- Affective Expression
- Social Reciprocity
- Characteristic Motor Behaviors
- Characteristic Verbal Behaviors
- Cognitive Verbal/Preverbal
- Expressive Language
- Receptive Language
- Fine Motor
- Gross Motor
In addition, a Caregiver Report asks the parent or 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. This report alerts teachers to the student’s developmental inconsistencies, providing guidelines for instructional planning.
New PEP-3 software handles all scoring, statistical analyses, graphing, charting, and report generation—saving significant time. The narrative report explains results and offers recommendations in terms that parents can understand.
The PEP-3 is extremely helpful in identifying special learning strengths and teachable skills.
