The new SPM and SPM-P Quick Tips is a collection of strategies for integrating sensory-based activities into a child’s everyday life. It’s a navigation tool to help answer the question “what’s next?” following administration of the SPM or SPM-P.

Key features:

  • Offers a framework based on careful standardised assessment developed from observations across multiple environments

  • Supports practitioners in using clinical reasoning and consultation skills in the intervention process

  • Provides a means of measuring qualitative progress 

  • Uses parent- and teacher-friendly language

  • Offers valuable information to assist in making decisions about intervention strategies based on clinical reasoning

  • Includes a data recording system to monitor progress

Primary users of the Quick Tips are occupational therapy practitioners in clinical, school, and community settings who have mentored with a sensory integration (SI) expert or are trained in SI and sensory processing. Teachers, school personnel and other professionals can use the strategies and techniques as long as the therapy practitioner responsible for interpreting administration results provides direction.
