The Psychoeducational Profile-Third Edition (PEP-3) is an individualised assessment for children with ASD aged from 2 years to 7.6 years. It is derived from the TEACCH programme, Division TEACCH, North Carolina, USA. It offers an understanding of a child’s unique learning strengths and weaknesses through assessing individual characteristics important for learning and education. This third edition provides information for making diagnostic decisions and for planning effective educational programmes. The seminar will provide background information on the PEP-3 assessment, offer opportunities for becoming familiar with the materials and provide guidance on scoring procedures. Participants will be given opportunities to consider its application in their own practice. Teachers who attend this course will be given the testing kit to take back to their school.
This course is provided by the Special Education Support Service in conjunction with tutors Lorraine Scott (Head of Learning, Support and Assessment) and Anita McEvoy (Educational Psychologist), Middletown Centre for Autism.
