SPM-2™: Expanded Across the Lifespan for Research, Clinical, and School-Based Practice
You can’t see sensory processing deficits just by looking at someone, but their needs will become clearer when you use the new SPM-2.
The SPM-2 is an upgrade and expansion of the Sensory Processing Measure family of products, widely acclaimed as the best of its kind. A behavior rating scale, the SPM-2 offers new forms – including driving forms – and a broadened age range, so no one gets left behind.
Like its predecessors, the new SPM-2 is firmly grounded in Ayres Sensory Integration® theory. T‑scores provide norm-referenced indexes of the integrative functions of praxis and social participation, as well as the following sensory systems:
Olfactory and Gustatory (new)
The SPM‑2 items provide descriptive clinical information on processing vulnerabilities within each sensory system, including under- and over-reactivity, sensory-seeking behavior, and difficulties with perception.
Infant/Toddler (4 to 30 months)
Parents and caregivers rate an infant or toddler and also rate themselves on their own sensory integration and processing function.
