Return to the Sensory Profile Summary
What the score means: This child responds to stimuli ‘probably more than others’. For Sensory Sensitivity, this means that the child responds ‘seldom’ to ‘occasionally’; children typically respond less often than this to stimuli in their environment during everyday life.
Since all the cut scores on the Sensory Profile
are based on the normal bell curve, a ‘probable difference’ score
means that the child responds more than about 84% of peers, about the same
as 14% of peers and less than 2% of peers. Go to the Bell
Curve illustration to see how this works.
