Home and Main Classroom Forms
Each requiring just 15 to 20 minutes, the Home and Main Classroom Forms yield eight parallel standard scores:
Scores for each scale fall into one of three interpretive ranges: Typical, Some Problems or Definite Dysfunction.
In addition, for the first time, an Environment Difference score permits direct comparison of the child's sensory functioning at home and at school. While the scales on the Home and Main Classroom Forms are identical, the items themselves are specific to each environment. Individual item responses reveal how sensory difficulties manifest in these two different settings.
School Environments Form
Comprehensive, Clinically Rich and Psychometrically Sound
The Home Form and Main Classroom Form were standardised on a demographically representative sample of 1,051 typically developing children in reception through to year 7 (in the US).
For the Home Form scale scores, internal consistency (a) estimates ranged from .77 to .95 (median = .85), and test-retest reliability estimates ranged from .94 to .98 (median = .97). For the Main Classroom Form scale scores, internal consistency estimates ranged from .75 to .95 (median = .86), and test-retest reliability estimates ranged from .95 to .98 (median = .97). A subsample of 306 children from the standardisation sample was used to develop scores and establish cutoff criteria for the School Environments Form.
The School Environments scores yielded internal consistency values ranging from .82 to .91 (median = .89). A separate sample of 345 children receiving occupational therapy intervention was used to verify that the SPM scales can differentiate typical children from those with clinical disorders. In addition, factor analysis and correlational studies provided evidence for the validity of the scale scores. Studies reported in the Manual document that the SPM differentiates typical children from those with clinical disorders.
