The Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT) measure the sensory integration processes that underlie learning and behaviour. By showing you how children organise and respond to sensory input, SIPT helps pinpoint specific organic problems associated with learning disabilities, emotional disorders, and minimal brain dysfunction.
17 Tests Provide a Comprehensive Assessment The SIPT measures visual, tactile, and kinesthetic perception as well as motor performance. It is composed of the following 17 brief tests:
- Space Visualisation
- Figure-Ground Perception
- Standing/Walking Balance
- Design Copying
- Postural Praxis
- Bilateral Motor Coordination
- Praxis on Verbal Command
- Constructional Praxis
- Postrotary Nystagmus
- Motor Accuracy
- Sequencing Praxis
- Oral Praxis
- Manual Form Perception
- Finger Identification
- Localisation of Tactile Stimuli
The entire battery can be given in 2 hours. And any of the individual tests can be administered separately in about 10 minutes. Norms are provided for each test—based on a national (US) sample of more than 2,000 children between the ages of 4 years and 8 years, 11 months.
Computer Scoring is Easy and Accurate
All SIPT tests are computer scored using the SIPT CD. Any combination of the 17 tests can be scored—you don’t need to administer the entire battery. For each child tested, you’ll receive a detailed report explaining SIPT results.
The Scoring CD Offers Flexibility
The SIPT CD allows you to score a partial test battery and still retain unused scoring credits. For example, each 10-use CD contains a counter with 150 credits, and each credit allows you to score one SIPT test. If you administer one test, the counter will reduce your credits by one unit. If you administer 16 tests, or the complete battery of 17 tests, the counter will reduce your credits by only 15 units. Therefore, each 10-use CD can score 10 complete test batteries or 150 individual tests. Similarly, each 25-use CD can score 25 complete batteries or 375 individual tests.
The SIPT CD gives you flexibility and immediate results.
NOTE: Professional training is recommended for SIPT Interpretation. Please see the Training section for this product for further details.
