Standardized and Normed Testing
Depending on the concerns, age and functional level of the child, language abilities, and ability to participate in adult directed tasks, an assessment at Development is CHILD’S PLAY! may include some of the following evaluation tools.

Analysis of Sensory Behavior Inventory-R-A non-standardized inventory for collection of information regarding an individual's behaviors and responses related to sensory stimuli.

Beery-Buktenica Developmental Test of Visual-Motor Integration, 6th Edition (Beery VMI) - This standardized test for ages 2 years through adult is designed to assess the extent to which individuals can integrate their visual and motor abilities. Separate supplemental tests include visual perception and motor coordination. The visual perception and motor coordination tests are provided as a means to statistically assess relatively pure visual and motor contributions to visual-motor integration performance. There is also a Short Form for ages 2-7.

Bruininks-Oseretsky Test of Motor Proficiency, Second Edition (BOT-2) - A standardized test used to assess the developmental level of gross and fine motor skills for children and young adults from ages 4 years 6 months to 21 years 11 months.

DeGangi-Berk Test of Sensory Integration (TSI) - A standardized test assessing postural control, bilateral motor integration, and reflex integration for children 3 to 5 years old.

Developmental Test of Visual Perception, Second Edition (DTVP-2) - A standardized test for children 4 years to 10 years 11 months of age, measuring both non-motor visual perception and visual-motor integration.

Miller Assessment for Preschoolers (MAP) - A standardized screening tool to identify children 2 years 9 months through 5 years 8 months who may exhibit moderate pre-academic problems which may affect one or more areas of development. Scores are used to help identify children who may have developmental delays, not those who may be developmentally advanced.

Minnesota Handwriting Assessment (MHA) - A norm-referenced assessment for children in the first and second grades that requires near point copying.

Peabody Developmental Motor Scales, second edition (PDMS-2) - A standardized test used to determine the developmental level of gross and fine motor skills for a child 0 through 71 months of age. It is composed of 6 subtests, which measure interrelated motor abilities that develop early in life.

Print Tool – A printing assessment that measures a child’s ability to meet benchmark skills for legible manuscript writing by age 6, 7, and 8 and older. Skills evaluated include memory, orientation, placement, size, start, sequence, control, and spacing.

Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT) – This standardized battery of 17 performance tests assess practic abilities and aspects of sensory processing, for children ages 4 years through 8 years 11 months. No verbal response is required.

Sensory Profile - A judgment-based caregiver questionnaire consisting of items describing a child's responses to various sensory experiences, used to measure sensory processing abilities and to profile the effect of sensory processing on functional performance in the daily life of a child. Certain patterns of performance on the Sensory Profile are indicative of difficulties with sensory processing and performance. It consists of 125 items grouped into 3 main sections: Sensory Processing, Modulation, and Behavioral and Emotional Responses. Responses are categorized as being typical, less than others, or more than others. The Sensory Profile is most appropriate for children 5-10 years of age, but does have scores for 3 and 4 year olds. In addition, there is an Infant/Toddler Profile, an Adolescent/Adult Profile and a School Companion.

  • Infant/Toddler Sensory Profile – Based on the Sensory Profile, for children from birth to 3 years of age.
  • Adolescent/Adult Sensory Profile – Based on the Sensory Profile but as a self-report questionnaire, most appropriate for ages 11+.
  • School Companion Sensory Profile – A standardized questionnaire completed by a child's teacher, measuring sensory processing abilities and their effect on the student's functional performance in the classroom and school environment, for ages 3 years 0 months to 11 years 11 months.

Sensory Processing Measure (SPM) - Norm-referenced rating scales that assess sensory processing, praxis, and social participation in elementary school-aged children (5-12). Each item is rated in terms of the frequency of varied behaviors. The Home Form is completed by the child's parent or home-based care provider. The Main Classroom Form is completed by the child's primary classroom teacher.

Sensory Processing Measure - Preschool (SPM-P) - Norm-referenced rating scales that assess sensory processing, praxis, and social participation in children of preschool age (2-5). Each item is rated in terms of the frequency of varied behaviors. The Home Form is completed by the child's parent or home-based care provider. The School Form is completed by the child's primary preschool teacher or daycare provider.

Test of Sensory Functions in Infants (TSFI) - A criterion-referenced test for children 4 to 18 months of age measuring sensory processing and reactivity according to five sub-domains: reactivity to tactile deep pressure, adaptive motor functions, visual-tactile integration, ocular-motor control, and reactivity to vestibular stimulation.

Test of Visual-Perceptual Skills (non-motor) (TVPS) - A standardized test for children 4 years to 12 years 11 months of age, used to determine visual perception strengths and weaknesses, without requiring a written or manipulative response.
