How we react to our environment is based on our sensory system. When our sensory needs are not met or are on high alert we cannot function. This can present in undesirable behaviors. When our sensory needs are met we are able to reach new levels of independence and interact with others.
The Sensory Integration Praxis Test (SIPT) is the most comprehensive standardized assessment of sensory integration. It is considered the “gold standard” for evaluating sensory needs. It is comprised of 17 sub tests that evaluate vision, touch, balance, praxis, gross and fine motor coordination, oral motor skills, proprioception, and vestibular systems.
Standardized for children 4 years to 8 years 11 months.
Once the SIPT is completed a formal intervention plan will be established.
