Standardized and Normed
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
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.
