Return to the Sensory Profile Summary
This child has typical tactile processing. This means that the child responds to touch experiences in everyday life ‘seldom’ to ‘occasionally’ just like age peers.
Since all the cut scores on the Sensory Profile
are based on the normal bell curve, a ‘typical’ score means that
the child responds about the same as 68% of peers. Approximately 16% of peers
engage in behaviors more than children in this group, and approximately 16%
of peers engage in behaviors less than children in this group. Go to the Bell
Curve illustration to see how this works.
