Purpose: Provide a complete picture of children's sensory processing difficulties at school and at home

Age: 2-5 years

Time: 15-20 minutes (each form)

The Preschool edition of the Sensory Processing Measure (SPM), the Sensory Processing Measure-Preschool (SPM-P) lets you take an early look at overall sensory functioning as well as specific vulnerabilities that can affect learning.

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.

The SPM-P includes both a Home Form, completed by the parent, and a School Form, completed by the preschool teacher or day care provider. Each form is composed of 75 items that are rated according to frequency of easily observable behaviours.

Used together, the two forms provide a comprehensive overview of sensory processing, and they allow you to quickly compare the child’s functioning across settings.

Because the SPM-P is based on the same scale structure and theory as the SPM, you can monitor a child's sensory development from preschool all the way through age 12. This kind of continuity is important when you're treating children who require long-term follow-up.
