Return to the Sensory Profile Summary
What the score means: This Sensory Sensitivity score is in the ‘definitely more than others’ range. For Sensory Sensitivity, this means that the child responds ‘always’ to ‘occasionally’ range. Children this age detect some of the things going on around them; the ‘typical response’ score for Sensory Sensitivity is in the ‘seldom’ to ‘never’ categories.
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, about the
same as 2% of peers. Go to the Bell Curve
illustration to see how this works.
