Use the Sensory Profile to determine how well children process sensory information in everyday situations and to profile the sensory system's effect on functional performance.
The profile contributes to a comprehensive picture of a child's performance. Combine it with other evaluation data to create a complete picture of the child's status for diagnostic and intervention planning.
Caregivers complete the 125 question profile, reporting the frequency with which their child responds to various sensory experiences. Once the questionnaire is completed, use the Summary Score Sheet to obtain a profile of the child's sensory responses. The Summary Score Sheet contains an area to record the child's demographic information, a Factor Grid to help summarise the child's scores into the nine factor groupings (i.e., Factor Summary), and a Section Summary to plot section raw score totals.
The Short Sensory Profile is a 38 item caregiver questionnaire and score sheet designed for use in screening and research protocols. The items on the Sensory Profile are grouped into three major sections:
- Sensory processing
- Behavioural and emotional responses.
The manual presents information on administration, scoring, interpretation guidelines, development, and technical properties (reliability and validity).
