Product Details

SIPT measure the sensory integration processes that underlie learning and behaviour.


  • Measures visual, tactile, and kinesthetic perception as well as motor performance
  • 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
  • The SIPT CD gives you flexibility and immediate results


17 tests provide a comprehensive assessment:

  1. Space Visualisation
  2. Figure-Ground Perception
  3. Standing/Walking Balance
  4. Design Copying
  5. Postural Praxis
  6. Bilateral Motor Coordination
  7. Praxis on Verbal Command
  8. Constructional Praxis
  9. Postrotary Nystagmus
  10. Motor Accuracy
  11. Sequencing Praxis
  12. Oral Praxis
  13. Manual Form Perception
  14. Kinesthesia
  15. Finger Identification
  16. Graphesthesia
  17. 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.
