The Sensory Integration Inventory – Revised for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities (SII-R)

The Sensory Integration Inventory – Revised for Individuals with Developmental Disabilities (SII-R; Reisman & Hanschu, 1999) is a non-standardized checklist that can be used to screen and rule out serious maladaptive behaviors that are not due to sensory dysfunction.


The Sensory Processing Measure (SPM) and SPM-P

The Sensory Processing Measure (SPM; 2007); and Sensory Processing Measure – Preschool (SPM-P; 2010) (Glennon, Miller-Kuhaneck, Henry, Parham, & Ecker, 2007 and 2010) measure sensory processing difficulties in children from 2 through 12 years of age.
