AbstractThe Psychoeducational Profile (PEP) has been used to assess the developmental functioning and behavior of autistic children in the West. To examine its suitability for assessing autistic children in Hong Kong, the PEP was translated into Chinese and certain items were adapted for local conditions. The Chinese version of the PEP (CPEP) was administered to 23 autistic children and 40 children with normal development, ranging in age from 3 to 7 years. Some of the children were also given the Merrill-Palmer Scale of Mental Tests. Results indicated that CPEP scores correlated significantly with Merrill Palmer scores, demonstrating criterion-related validity. Significant positive correlations were also found between age and CPEP scores for children with normal development, verifying that the CPEP has properties of a developmental scale. There was also a significant difference between children with normal development and children with autism on the Pathology scale, suggesting that the scale has discriminant validity.
