Appropriate for 2- to 5-year-olds, the SPM-P measures the same functions as the SPM:
Within each sensory system, the SPM-P items also reveal specific problems, including under- and over-responsiveness, sensory-seeking behaviour, and perceptual problems. In addition, the items provide information on the senses of taste and smell.
Direct Comparison of Sensory Functioning at Home and Preschool
The SPM-P includes:
Each form is composed of 75 items that are rated according to frequency of easily observable behaviours. Used together, the two forms provide a comprehensive overview of sensory processing, and they allow you to quickly compare the child's functioning across settings.
Norm-Referenced Standard Scores
The test generates a T-score for each SPM-P scale and characterises the child's status in descriptive terms as well (Typical, Some Problems or Definite Dysfunction). An Environment Difference score alerts you to discrepancies in sensory functioning between home and preschool setting.
Norms for both the Home and School Forms are based on a representative US sample of 651 typically developing 2- to 5-year-olds. They are age-stratified to control for developmental differences between younger and older children. Data from a separate group of 242 youngsters - all receiving occupational therapy intervention - demonstrate that SPM-P scales, and items, can differentiate typical children from those with clinical disorders, including autism.
