The modules shown here represent the state of the package as it was in 1994. Since then a number of modules have undergone changes, and one major change, which affects the way a number of modules work, is the introduction of a system for choosing people, which supports multi-ethnic groups.

This module presents the child with a picture of a boy and a girl from which they can select their gender. The child is then prompted to enter their name and age. the gender information is used to set the gender of the material presented in other sections of the package. The answers to these questions can be verified with known information about the child.
In this module a view of an individual of the same gender as the child is presented. The child may select an expression from a palette of seven emotional expressions, and talk about them. This allows the interviewer to discover if the child understands the emotions represented in the palette, and to ask the child to think about events that may have a specific emotional aspect. It is designed to be used in whatever way the interviewer thinks is appropriate, and information gleaned from its use can be used to tailor the way in which the interviewer presents the other modules - for example information about the child's use of language.
Similar to emotions I except, by default, eleven different scenes are presented featuring an individual of the same gender as the child. The child chooses an expression from the palette that they believe is appropriate to the scene in question. The standard set of scenes allow the interviewer to explore the child's understanding of the emotions represented in the emotional palette. This module can be used with a set of alternative scenes, selected by the interviewer from a collection of many different scenes, with specific features.
Used to select a building or place from a range of alternatives. The information gathered by this module about locations is likely to be verifiable, and can be used as an indicator that the child is using the package reliably. This module can be used to permit the child to choose a building to represent any place that the interviewer wishes them to talk about.
Permits the selection of one or more individuals (usually associated with a place). This is used initially to get the child to describe the people who live in their primary residence. By populating a location the child can be asked questions about how they feel with individuals when they are in certain locations.
After individuals have been placed in a location, it is necessary to discover if the child has included themselves among the group. This information is used to prevent the picture representing the child from showing up in other modules where there is another representation of the child, and it would be confusing for both representations to present at the same time.
For each of the seven emotional expressions in the palette, the child is able to select people that they have felt that emotion with. The people that the child chooses are ones who they have previously associated with a place in the buildings module.
Allows the marking of pain sites on pictures of the front and back views of a child. Pain sites may then have a shape, size and "throb" associated with them.
A "work-in-progress" module presenting a tool which allows the selection of a number of objects which may be positioned in a "room".
