The Sensory Profile™ 2 family of assessments provides you with standardized tools to help evaluate a child's sensory processing patterns in the context of home, school, and community-based activities. These significantly revised questionnaires evaluate a child's unique sensory processing patterns from a position of strengths, providing deeper insight to help you customize the next steps of intervention. The forms are completed by caregivers and teachers, who are in the strongest position to observe the child's response to sensory interactions that occur throughout the day.
Uses and Applications
The Sensory Profile 2 helps you:
Identify and document how sensory processing may be contributing to or interfering with a child's participation at home, school, and the community.
Contribute valuable information to a comprehensive assessment of the child's sensory strengths and challenges in context.
Develop effective treatment plans, interventions, and everyday remediation strategies
