Return to the Sensory Profile Summary
What the score means: This child responds to sounds ‘probably less than others’. For Auditory processing, this means that the child ‘almost never’ responds to sounds; children this age typically respond more often than this to sounds in 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 less than about 84% of peers, about the same
as 14% of peers and more than 2% of peers. Go to the Bell
Curve illustration to see how this works.
