PEGS provides colourful picture cards that illustrate 24 tasks essential for daily living and participation in school. These tasks are age-appropriate and reflect skills that have normally been acquired by children of this age. Each task has two cards associated with it. One card depicts a child successfully performing the task and the other card shows a child not performing the task well. Children select the card that best represents their ability to perform the task and indicate whether they are "a lot like" or "a little like" the chosen card. The cards that illustrate the most challenging tasks for the child are used in goal-setting process that enables the child to identify priorities for intervention.

Parents and teachers also play a key role in collaborative goal setting. Parent and teachers complete a short questionnaire regarding the child's ability to perform daily tasks and outline their priorities. Their perspectives are incorporated as all parties collectively determine the goals for therapy intervention.
