The PEP-3
is a revision of the popular instrument that has been used for more
than 20 years to assess the skills and behaviors of children with autism
and communicative disabilities who function between the ages of 6
months to 7 years. The profile resulting from the PEP-3
graphically charts uneven and idiosyncratic development, emerging
skills, and autistic behavioral characteristics. This test 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 PEP-3 now includes a Caregiver
Report. This report utilizes 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 PEP-3 has included
additional data that identify special learning strengths and teachable
skills. Also, the third edition is improved by offering normative data
both from a group of children in the autism spectrum as well as from a
comparison group of children without autism. It is the only test to date
that provides data for within-group comparison to children in the
autism spectrum.

Improvements to the PEP-3:

  1. The
    function domains have been revised to reflect current research and
    clinical concerns, especially in the area of social and communication
  2. All of the toys and materials needed to administer
    the test (except food, drink, and a light switch) are now included with
    the test.
  3. New items and subtests have been added; obsolete ones were deleted.
  4. 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. These are the first normative data provided for
    comparison of a child's PEP results with children of either comparison
  5. Reliability coefficients have been computed by age for
    subgroups within the normative sample (i.e., males, females, white,
    black, and Hispanic Americans.)
  6. Validity evidence is provided for children in the autism spectrum for all areas measured by the test.

  7. The scoring has been quantified as 0, 1, and 2; and each score is
    clearly defined, making statistical comparisons more accurate. At the
    same time, the flexibility of the previous system, using pass, emerge,
    and fail, has been maintained.
  8. A Caregiver Report has been
    added which includes Current Developmental Levels, Diagnostic Categories
    and Degree of Problem, and three subtests: Problem Behaviors; Personal
    Self-Care, and Adaptive Behavior. The Caregiver Report provides teachers
    and other professionals with information needed for a more thorough and
    complete planning for each child.
