SENSORY INTEGRATION

SIPT - The Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT) is a battery used to test the sensory integration processes that underlie learning and behaviour. By showing you how children organise and respond to sensory input, SIPT helps pinpoint specific difficulties.

Sensory Profiles - The Sensory Profile is a standardised tool to help evaluate a persons’ sensory processing patterns in the context of home, school and community-based activities. The forms are completed by caregivers, teachers, Adolescents/adults (independently) who have observed the child’s response to sensory interactions that occur throughout the day.

Sensory Processing Measure - The Sensory Processing Measure (SPM) captures a picture of children’s sensory functioning at home, at school and in the community, recognising that sensory processing problems often manifest differently in different environments. It provides norm-referenced standard scores and within each sensory system, it offers descriptive clinical information on processing vulnerabilities, including under- and over responsiveness, sensory-seeking behaviour, and perceptual problems.

 

Miller Function & Participation Scales (Mfun) - The developmental assessment tool assesses functional motor skills. It helps to link performance of functional activities to neuromotor foundational abilities.

Ayres' Sensory Integration Clinical observations - In the practice of Ayres’ Sensory Integration, structured clinical neurological observations form part of the comprehensive assessment needed to understand the sensory systems and how challenges to sensory registration, sensory processing and sensory integration contribute to difficulties participating in activities of daily life. The observations are based on a group of physical tasks which look at motor functions some of which include: ocular pursuits, postural control, bilateral coordination, flexion/extension (to test for low tone, hyper-mobility’s etc), and sequencing.
