The Psychological Processing Checklist–Revised (PPC–R) asks teachers to rate observable and measurable characteristics and behaviors of the child in the classroom to measure psychological processing difficulties of children in kindergarten through grade five. The PPC-R provides the assessor with information that assists in the assessment of the categories or processing necessary to differentiate learning disabilities from underachievement and other disabling conditions. In addition, the PPC-R assists in understanding the student’s learning difficulties and provides useful information for developing effective interventions to facilitate learning.
