Comprehensive OT Sensory Assessments for Improved Emotional Regulation

NDIS registered provider

Sensory assessments are critical in evaluating sensory processing and integration for functional capacity in mental health occupational therapy. Evaluations can include clinical observations, caregiver questionnaires, and standardised testing.

Why Are Sensory Assessments Essential in Occupational Therapy?

We assess sensory modulation, praxis, discrimination, perception, integration, and other motor skills. This includes balance, bilateral motor co-ordination, and posture, and it helps therapists identify motor and sensory elements impacting personal autonomy development.

What Are Sensory Assessments?

A Sensory assessment evaluates how the client copes with daily sensory information loads via analysing behaviours under stress.

These assessments and reports assist therapists in developing personalised sensory modulation plans using sensory body-based and stimuli strategies to help develop emotional regulation. In addition, these activities help encourage occupational engagement and an appropriate functioning level.


What Types of Tests are Included?

Numerous sensory assessment tests are available. Evaluations can include an adolescent and adult sensory profile – a self-evaluation of responses to everyday sensory experiences informing the impact of functional performance on sensory processing.

Testing can also include an Assessment of Motor and Process Skills (AMPS) including 20 process and 16 motor items – an observational evaluation; a standardised Motor-Free Visual Perception Test (MVPT), a Sensory Integration and Praxis Test (SIPT) to measure underlying sensory integration processes, and the Vineyard Adaptive Behavior Scales (Vineland-II or VABS) – designed to assess adaptive behaviour from birth to age 90. Among many other options, assessments can include School Functional Assessments (SFA) and handwriting legibility and speed.
