For anyone that's interested, I've posted two free scoring tools for the Sensory Profile on my website: www.upanzi.com (click on "Sensory Profile Scoring" on the top menu). These tools are Excel documents (so you need to have Microsoft Excel), but they should greatly increase your scoring speed!

If you use these tools and find them helpful, I'd appreciate it if you'd leave me a comment on my website.

I LOVE your tool - it is awesome!! I'd love it if you could plug in the patient name and birthday and it would calculate age and score accordingly (if a 3 or 4 year old use cut scores) Any chance you'll be doing the toddler or adolescent version anytime soon? you are a lifesaver and time saver!!!! GREAT WORK!!!

Hi Maureen!
Someone else was kind enough to send me a copy of the Infant/Toddler SP. I think that I have all that I need, but if not I'll send you an email!
Thanks!

Between paying jobs I'm currently working on a revision of the Caregiver Scorer. Once that's done I'll start on the infant/toddler scoring tool. Sorry I don't have a more specific date at this point.

Hi Todd...
Not sure if you'll get much help here (and the actual write up is not something I'm familiar with). if you don't get help here, you might want to try posting something at OT Exchange (otexchange.com).

Hi, Matt! I'm an OT working in psych and one of several who have created an self-study evidence based practice group that meets at Rush. We are currently studying sensory processing problems and how we might intervene in psych settings with sensory techniques rather than always using meds or leathers! We are working with the ADULT sensory profile. Have you worked up a score sheet for that instrument? It could be useful for several of us. Thanks for your: time, consideration, and hard work to date!

Hi Fred,
I haven't worked up something the Adolescent/Adult SP yet, in large part because i don't have access to the scoring materials. If you want to send me a questionnaire and scoring sheet I can look into it. One note, though: I've contacted Winnie Dunn to get her permission for the scoring sheets. She in-turn has contacted her rep at Pearson Assessment. Thus, I am currently waiting to hear back from Pearson. I believe that my production and free distribution of these scoring sheets falls under the Fair Use Doctrine of copyright law, but I want to be upfront with everyone on this. I think the scoring tools benefit everyone, but especially Pearson as they are loosing ground to the Sensory Processing Measure in large part because of it's ease of scoring. If you want to send me an email to discuss this further, there is a contact link at the top right of my webpage: www.upanzi.com .
Thanks for the inquiry!
Matt

Alas, no. I used to share it on my website (upanzi.com), but I no longer can. Quite a few people on OTExchange downloaded it, though, so you might ask on their general forum if someone can send it to you.

Chrissy,
Your best bet on this would be to post a message in the general forums on OT Exchange (www.otexchange.com).
I'm not personally well versed on the scoring & interpretation. I'm just someone who knew how to make Excel take care of most of the math when you're scoring the SP. Anyway, there are a lot of wondeful OTs on OT Exchange, why don't you give that a try.

hi chrissy,
i recently needed the same info. I found that you can by software ($120.00) from the company. You can enter all the scores and it creates a report for you. I just received it. It makes it quite easy.

Sorry Matt,
Yes I did. Thank you very much. I ended up purchasing the software from the company. It allows you to enter the scores and creates a report.

Matt in Metamora, Illinois said: Thanks for the comments Wendy.

The next version that i'm working on will have a slot for Name and you will be able to select the age that you want the report for. Still trying to track down someone that has the 2006 SP Supplement, though, to get a little more information on the expanded cut scores.

As far as the infant/toddler version, I'm open to working on one, but I don't have access to the scoring sheets or manual for it. If you have these, and if you want to help, please send me an email (there's a Contact link on my website).

Matt

Carrie,
I have an agreement with Pearson to no longer distribute the scoring tool that I created. You may want to try posting a message on OT Exchange. Someone there may have a copy that they can share with you.

Tina/OTC,

I'm not maintaining the Upanzi.com website at this time. Not sure if you've read through the comments on this page, but I've in the past that I am no longer able to distribute the scoring sheet, per an agreement with Pearson. I've also posted on this page where else you may be able to find it.

Best of luck,
Matt

Donna,
You might try posting a message on OTExchange.com and asking if anyone has a copy. There were a number of OTs on those message boards that helped me test the scoring tool. Someone might still have a copy.
Best of luck,
Matt
