Pearson’s Sensory Profile

I started my journey of fascination with sensory integration when working with adults with profound learning disabilities. Spending time in the sensory room reaching adults through sensory experience, whom normally seemed unresponsive to the world around them, brought me great joy. I began to learn how some people are sensory seekers while others are sensation avoiders. From this I was able to provide coping strategies to manage their sensory needs. I have studied sensory integration at academic level, and work as a sensory integration occupational therapist assessing individuals’ sensory needs and difficulties.
About Pearson’s Sensory Profile
The Sensory Profile is designed as a trait measure of sensory processing patterns and effects on functional performance. This enables the instrument to capture the more stable and enduring processing preferences of an individual across the six sensory categories:
- Taste/smell processing
- Movement processing
- Visual Processing
- Touch Processing
- Activity level
- Auditory Processing
The Sensory Profile is used to determine how well children process sensory information in everyday situations and to profile the sensory system’s effect on functional performance. The profile contributes to a comprehensive picture of a child’s performance. Combine it with other evaluation data to create a complete picture of the child’s status for diagnostic and intervention planning.
I use the Pearson’s Sensory Profile.
