Psychoeducational Profile Third Edition PEP-3 Kit
Quantity in Basket: None
By Eric Schopler, Ph.D., et al.
The third edition of the popular Psychoeducational Profile: Third Edition (PEP-3) allows you to assess the skills and behaviors of children with autism and communicative disabilities with a developmental age between 6 months and 7 years. 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 the educational programming for young children (ages 3 through 5) with disabilities and is particularly useful in planning for older students' Individualized Education Programs (IEPs).
The function domains for the PEP-3 were revised to reflect current research and clinical concerns, especially in the area of social and communication functions. The test yields 3 composite scores (Communication, Motor, and Maladaptive Behaviors) and features 10 Performance Subtests:
The PEP 3 now includes a Caregiver Report that 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 form has been shown to help orient teachers to a student's developmental inconsistencies and provides professionals with information needed for thorough and complete planning.
In addition, the PEP-3 is helpful in identifying special learning strengths and teachable skills. The Object Kit now includes all toys and materials needed to administer the test except for food, drink, and a light switch.
Also, the latest edition features normative data both from a group of children in the autism spectrum as well as from a comparison group of children without autism. Normative data were collected from 2002 to 2003, with large national samples of children in the autism spectrum and of typical children ranging from 2 to 71/2 years of age.
The complete PEP-3 kit includes: Manual, Guide to Item Administration, Picture Book, 10 Examiner Scoring/Summary Booklets, 10 Response Booklets, 10 Caregiver Report Forms, and an Object Kit, all in a sturdy storage box.
