Abstract

The purpose of the study was to investigate the performance of normal Indian children on Short Sensory Profile (SSP) belong to various Age-groups (3 years, 4 years and 5-10 years), it will be useful to understand their behavior with the help of the parents/caregivers of the children. 50 normal Indian children were approached on different platforms and incorporated in the study on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria of the study. The sample does not represent the entire population of normal Indian children; therefore the study can be done with larger sample size. The therapist used a 5-point Likert scale to report the percentage of time their children engaged in each behavior. Based on SSP scores, 50 children showed 40% (20) typical performance, 28% (14) were found to be in the probable difference range, and 32% (16) are in the definite difference range. Forty (40%) children fall in typical performance. The most prevalent sensory processing dysfunctions involved the Tactile sensitivity (46%), Underresponsive/seek sensation (48%), and Movement sensitivity (58%), Auditory Filtering (70%), Low Energy/ weak (72%), Visual/Auditory sensitivity (62%) domains. 32% children fall into definite difference and 28% children fall in the range of probable difference. Tactile sensitivity (38%), Taste/Smell sensitivity (20%), Movement sensitivity (26%) and Underresponsive/seek sensation (30%) domains. The researcher has studied that the scores of all items, sections, and total are different than other studies but the result is the same. This variation in the scores it might be due to the different cultures in the world, it creates a need to assess the expectation, perceptions, and views of caregivers from different cultures.
