The PARCA-R questionnaire

PARCA-R stands for Parent Report of Children’s Abilities-Revised. It is a parent completed questionnaire that can be used to assess children's cognitive and language development at 24 months of age.

The PARCA-R is used as an outcome measure in research studies and as a screening tool in child development clinics. In 2017, the National Institute of Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) recommended the PARCA-R be used to assess the development of children born preterm in England.
