The Preschool edition of the popular Sensory Processing Measure allows you to identify sensory processing difficulties in children as young as 2 years old, and lets you take an early look at overall sensory functioning as well as specific vulnerabilities that can affect learning.

8 Functional Areas
Appropriate for 2- to 5-year-olds, the SPM-P measures the same functions as the SPM:

  • Social Participation
  • Vision
  • Hearing
  • Touch
  • Body Awareness
  • Balance and Motion
  • Planning and Ideas
  • Total Sensory Systems

Within each sensory system, the SPM-P items also reveal specific problems, including under- and over-responsiveness, sensory-seeking behaviour, and perceptual problems. In addition, the items provide information on the senses of taste and smell.
