Webinar Description:
The webinar will be live. A link will be sent prior to the start. It will focus on familiarizing participants with the Sensory Processing Measure-2 (SPM-2) which now can be used to assess sensory processing challenges in infants (4 months of age) throughout the lifespan (87 years of age), and to develop sensory-based strategies based on the results. Information on how the updated SPM-2 assesses visual, auditory, tactile, olfactory, gustatory, proprioceptive and vestibular systems, as well as praxis and social participation will be discussed.

The development of this new measure, features, normative data, reliability, and validity will be reviewed.  Participants will also have an opportunity to become more familiar with scoring (paper and electronic) and report generation. The Online Evaluation System (OES) for administration, scoring and Quick Tips access will be reviewed and accessed during the session to help participants feel comfortable using it in their settings.

An overview of the Quick Tips will also be provided to illustrate how this can be used to develop intervention programs based on the concerns identified on the SPM-2. Case studies illustrating how the measure can be used with multiple disciplines to identify sensory processing issues, as well as how data can be sorted by sensory vulnerability for treatment planning will also be presented.

Webinar Objectives:
Participants will:

  • Understand supporting research behind development of the SPM-2, as well as normative data, reliability, and validity
  • Learn the basics of scoring, report generation and Quick Tips for assessment and development of interventions.
  • Be exposed to case studies using the SPM-2to explore how it can be used to promote team collaboration
