Parents’ Evaluation of Developmental Status-Revised, or PEDS-R®, is an evidence based screening tool for children 0 to 8 years, that elicits and addresses parents’ concerns about a chid’s development, behavior and mental health. PEDS-R® is a simple, 12-item questionnaire that is completed by the parent.
PEDS-R® saves time, promotes family collaboration and willingness to return for future visits.
PEDS-R® is validated and only takes about 5 minutes for parents to complete, and 2 minutes for clinicians to score.

PEDS:DM® is the PEDS®:Developmental Milestones test.
- 6-8 items per visit focused on children’s skills in each developmental domain: fine motor, gross motor, expressive language, receptive language, self-help, social-emotional, and for older children preschool and school skills. The questions take about 5 minutes to complete and 1 minute to score.
- Designed for children at any age from birth until age 8, the measure consists of a laminated book of questions upon which parents mark answers with a dry erase marker. Marks are wiped off in preparation for re-use with the next family. To score, a single template is placed over the completed page to reveal each milestone not met.
- Replaces informal milestones checklists (known to miss 70% of children with problems) with proven, validated, and accurate items.
- Includes a developmental promotion component by encouraging parents, once they’ve completed the questions, to read a short story to their children about age-appropriate parent-child interactions. Online applications are coming soon. See www.pedstest.com for updates.
- The PEDS:DM® Results & Interpretation Form is used to record answers and can be reused with each child to produce a graph of progress over time.
- The PEDS:DM® manual contains information on parenting, billing and coding, and directions for using the PEDS:DM® alone, in combination with PEDS-R®, or with screens of parent-child interactions, psychosocial risk, resilience, ADHD, and autism spectrum disorders, along with parent information handouts, case examples, and training guides.
