Faces pain-rating scale

The Faces pain rating scale (depicting smiling. neutral. frowning. crying. etc.) is appropriate for young children who may have difficulty describing pain or understanding the correlation of pain to numerical or verbal descriptors. The other tools require abstract reasoning abilities to make analogies and use of advanced vocabulary.
