No More Confusion
Sensory processing can be a bit bewildering to parents, and sometimes teachers, too. So it’s importantto choose a test that measures clearly dened functions and produces comprehensible scores.
Information That Parents Understand
SPM and SPM-P scales are described in simple, nontechnical language:
Social Participation Hearing Body Awareness Planning and IdeasVision Touch Balance and Motion Total Sensory SystemsBecause it’s easy to explain what you’re measuring, it’s also easy to explain results.
Easy Scoring, Interpretation, and Report Writing
The SPM and SPM-P give you a quick visual summary of results—with scores that are easy to understand and
genuinely useful in report writing and treatment planning. Home and School Forms are standardized on the
same group of children, so you can directly compare teacher and parent ratings.
