A child with sensory processing issues leads a life that differs significantly from typically developing children. There are numerous types of sensations that children encounter every day in different environments, especially in school. If a child does not process the incoming stimuli correctly then their motor response is affected. As a result of this, the child is unable to perform to their fullest potential in school. The Sensory Profile (SP) and the Sensory Processing Measure (SPM) are two tools that help assess sensory processing.
