QUESTION: Favorite Assessment Tools?

QUESTION:

Gwen, if you were stranded on a desert island and could only take a handful of  assessments that test for sensory modulation/sensory needs, what would that handful of assessments include? Thanks for your time and knowledge.

 

GWEN’S ANSWER:

I would love to be stranded on a desert island for a couple of weeks without any assessments at all! 🙂 But if I had to take a couple with me to treat the islanders, I would take a good, FREE sensory needs checklist (like the one on my website) and the Sensory Processing Measure. Typically a good checklist is all that is needed to address modulation issues. If I want standardized results, I choose the SPM because it is easy to administer and score. Let me know if I can be of any more help!

Best Wishes,
Gwen
