Standard FAQs

Is there a UK version of Sensory Profile 2?

Sensory Profile 2 has been developed using US normative data, options for developing a UK validation of the tool are currently being considered. Due to customer demand for the Sensory Profile 2 we have released the US version for UK customers; we will keep customers abreast of any further decisions regarding a UK validation.


What does Sensory Profile 2 replace?

SP2 is a revision of all Sensory Profile products except the[!--Space--]Adolescent/Adult Sensory Profile. It does have an upward extension to age 14:11 (previously 10:11) providing some overlap with the Adolescent/Adult form for ages 11-14:11, thus allowing self-report and caregiver-report for this age range.

To clarify, the revision replaces:

  • Infant Toddler Sensory Profile
  • Sensory Profile
  • Sensory Profile Supplement
  • School Companion Sensory Profile
  • Sensory Profile Select Scoring Assistant


I don’t want all the forms, I just want an updated version of the school form (or infant/toddler/child forms); can I do that?

Yes you can. Simply purchase the manual and individual record forms for the product you require; the price is comparable to the previous edition.


Do you have a scoring subscription available for Sensory Profile 2 on Q-global?

Right now this is not available, but something we are working on and anticipate having available in the future. The current pricing for Q-global is per report, therefore similar to purchasing record forms with the added bonus of time savings and enhanced reporting options.
