Picture of (SIPT) Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests

Safety Warning Choking Hazard CHOKING HAZARD - Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.


The Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT) measure the sensory integration processes that underlie learning and behavior. By showing you how children organize and respond to sensory input, SIPT helps pinpoint specific organic problems associated with learning disabilities, emotional disorders, and minimal brain dysfunction. 

17 Tests Provide a Comprehensive Assessment

The SIPT measures visual, tactile, and kinesthetic perception as well as motor performance. It is composed of the following 17 brief tests:

1. Space Visualization

2. Figure-Ground Perception

3. Standing/Walking Balance

4. Design Copying

5. Postural Praxis

6. Bilateral Motor Coordination

7. Praxis on Verbal Command

8. Constructional Praxis

9. Postrotary Nystagmus

10. Motor Accuracy

11. Sequencing Praxis

12. Oral Praxis

13. Manual Form Perception

14. Kinesthesia

15. Finger Identification

16. Graphesthesia

17. Localization of Tactile Stimuli

The entire battery can be given in 2 hours. And any of the individual tests can be administered separately in about 10 minutes. Norms are provided for each test—based on a national sample of more than 2,000 children between the ages of 4 years and 8 years, 11 months. 

Computer Scoring is Easy and Accurate

All SIPT tests are computer scored using the SIPT CD. Any combination of the 17 tests can be scored—you don’t need to administer the entire battery. For each child tested, you’ll receive a detailed report explaining SIPT results. 

The Scoring CD Offers Flexibility—and a New Low Price

The SIPT CD allows you to score a partial test battery and still retain unused scoring credits. For example, each 10-use CD contains a counter with 150 credits, and each credit allows you to score one SIPT test. If you administer one test, the counter will reduce your credits by one unit. If you administer 16 tests, or the complete battery of 17 tests, the counter will reduce your credits by only 15 units. Therefore, each 10-use CD can score 10 complete test batteries or 150 individual tests. Similarly, each 25-use CD can score 25 complete batteries or 375 individual tests.    

The SIPT CD gives you flexibility, immediate results, and a new low price. Look at the CD scoring packages on the next page to see how much you’ll save.

NOTE: SIPT interpretation requires professional training. Orders should indicate the name and professional qualifications of the individual responsible for SIPT use.
