Sensory Profile Toolkit: A Sensory Resource for Parents of autistic Children.

This booklet begins with an introduction to sensory differences in autism and an explanation of the sensory system. Following this is a sensory checklist for each of the 8 senses:

  • Sight
  • Sound
  • Smell
  • Touch
  • Taste
  • Proprioception (sense of self in space)
  • Vestibular (balance)
  • Interoception (sense of body, discomfort and pain)


The book then goes onto an interpretation of the results, followed by a list of suggested activities.

The book is wire bound with a laminated cover and is designed to be written in.

It does not replace a sensory assessment, but will help parents who are struggling in this area to understand some of the ways they can support their child.

The booklet can be purchased for £6.85 (Inc first class postage) from our eShop using the link below.
