Description
A standard method for professionals to measure a child’s sensory processing abilities and to profile the effect of sensory processing on functional performance in the child’s daily life. This profile is designed for children from birth to 36 months and applicable for children with all types of disabilities and severity levels. It is a judgment-based caregiver questionnaire and each item describes children’s responses to various sensory experiences. Certain patterns of performance are indicative of difficulties with sensory processing and performance. When combined with other evaluations, observations, and reports, results of the Infant/Toddler Sensory Profile provide another perspective on the child’s strengths and challenges for diagnostic and intervention planning.
