The Short Sensory Profile (SSP):

The Short Sensory Profile (SSP) Ben Atchison, PhD, OTR, FAOTA An Overview

Purpose :

Purpose Screen quick identification Referral for more comprehensive assessment Effective intervention planning Incorporate a sensory processing measure in research

SSP Sections:

SSP Sections Tactile Sensitivity Taste/Smell Sensitivity Movement Sensitivity

SSP Sections:

SSP Sections Underresponsive /Seeks Sensation Auditory Filtering Low Energy/Weak Visual/Auditory Sensitivity


Administration/Scoring 38 items 10 minutes Administer in three ways Mail While child being assessed Direct assist

PowerPoint Presentation:

38 Items representing Sensory Modulation

Specific Administration Procedures:

Specific Administration Procedures Always 100% Frequently 75% Occasionally 50% Seldom 25% Never 00% IF ANY ITEM LEFT BLANK CANNOT COMPUTE A RAW SCORE FOR THAT SECTION


Scoring Always 1 point Frequently 2 points Occasionally 3 points Seldom 4 points Never 5 points


Scoring If responder places x between 2 categories: Between Never and Seldom 4 points Between Seldom and Occasionally 3 points Between Occasionally and Frequent 2 points Between Frequent and Occasionally 1 point
