Sensory Profile Questionnaire
* This not a sensory assessment but provides an insight to the sensory difficulties that someone on the spectrum may experience.
The sensory profile is used to give an indication of a child’s/adults sensory processing difficulties and allow recommendations to be suggested and put in place to help them manage their difficulties. It is not a replacement for a full sensory assessment carried out by a trained Occupational Therapist.
The program used to determine the profile of the user is designed by Snoezelen and askes ten questions about 6 areas of sensory integration i.e. Sight, sound, smell, taste, touch, and movement. It asks about behaviours observed and then provides a score between 0-50 based on the responses given.
If you have any questions, please talk to your family support advisor regarding the assessment.
