It has been developed with experts from the worlds of education, Applied Behavioural Analysis, Positive Behaviour Support, Occupational Therapy, Speech & Language Therapy as well as input from service users and parents.
I really like the assessment tool. I found it easy to fill out, it is intuitive and it clearly shows what the pupils need to focus on to be more independent and it clearly breaks things down into teachable units
Before, I didn't know what was or should be taught, P2I is clear and shows what benefits my child now and in the future. I like how visual it is but most of all how my child is not compared to others.
I could not agree with the P2I more! A tool that will assess the whole child against their pathway to adulthood is exciting and unique
