Return to the Sensory Profile Summary
What the score means: When a child gets a ‘more than others’ score, it means that the child does the group of behaviors more than other children in the same age group. Children typically respond less often to stimuli in their environment. In the disability groups we have tested (see research section and bibliography), the children with disabilities are more likely to respond ‘more than others’.
Since all the cut scores on the Sensory Profile are based on the normal bell curve, ‘definitely more
than others’ score means that the child responds more than about 98%
of peers, and the ‘probably more than others’ score means that
the child responds more than about 84% of peers.
