The Sensory Profile™ 2 family of assessments provides you with standardised tools to help evaluate a child's sensory processing patterns in the context of everyday life. These significantly revised questionnaires can help you determine how sensory processing may be contributing to or interfering with the child's participation in activities. 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.
