Research on PAGS
PAGS® has been trialled in schools and colleges in the UK and Belgium. It has been trialled on individual cases with ages 5-25y and on neurotypical children and adults. The assessment has been presented at European Conferences and in September 2019 at the 12th International Autism Congress as a Poster Presentation.
