Psychoeducational Profile Revised (PEP-R)
The PEP-R provides developmental scores in the areas of imitation, perception, fine motor, gross motor, eye hand integration, cognitive performance, and cognitive verbal skills. In addition it provides behavioral scales in the areas of relating, response to materials, sensory, and language.
This is typically completed in multiple settings (school, home, community, and other therapies the child is receiving).
