This module is designed for those who use the Infant/Toddler Sensory Profile (ITSP) as part of early intervention. The first two sections (pages 3-11) are directed to all users—those who are familiar with ITSP administration, scoring and interpretation, as well as those who are unfamiliar with the ITSP. The rest of the module addresses individual learning needs as explained on page 7. Readers should select from these sections according to their own unique needs. Specific notes throughout the module discuss how the ITSP is included within programs provided in Philadelphia County.
Following review of this module and completion of recommended activities, participants will be able to:
· explain the rationale for using the Infant/Toddler Sensory Profile (ITSP) and for its use in the Philadelphia Early Intervention system.
· administer the ITSP with families.
· score the ITSP.
· interpret an infant or toddler’s own unique sensory processing patterns in relation to his or her identified performance strengths and limitations.
· summarize and communicate the ITSP results to families and other team members.
· document ITSP results on the MDE/IFSP form.
· provide suggestions about ways to address a child’s unique sensory processing patterns within the family’s daily routines and activities.
