Meet a Child’s Sensory Processing Needs
With Sensory Profile™, you can determine how well children ages 3 to 10 years process sensory information in everyday situations. You can also profile the sensory system's effect on functional performance. The results of Sensory Profile, when considered with other evaluation data, will give you greater insight about the child for diagnostic and intervention planning.
Developed by Dr. Winnie Dunn, well known in the field of sensory integration, Sensory Profile will help you understand a child's sensory processing patterns.
Sensory Profile Supplement

The Sensory Profile Supplement offers the latest research available on sensory processing. This resource provides general information about sensory processing and problem solving strategies supported by clinical reasoning, along with expanded cut scores and quadrant cut scores. Use this supplement in conjunction with the current Sensory Profile to target effective intervention.
Items are grouped by sensory processing, modulation, and behavioral and emotional responses. The nine factor groupings characterize children by their responsiveness to sensory input including, Sensory seeking, Emotional reactive, Low endurance/tone, Oral sensory sensitivity, Inattention/distractibility, Poor registration, Sensory sensitivity, Sedentary, and Fine motor/perceptual.
The development of this evaluation tool was based on research on over 1,000 children, including children with disabilities, ADHD, and autism.
