The Sensory Symptoms Checklist

The Sensory Symptoms Checklist is designed to give you a clear picture of you or your child’s sensory needs, without using an extensive standardized test.

This free checklist is available for a variety of ages, including babies, toddlers, school-aged children, as well as adolescents and adults. Available in English, Spanish and Chinese for the home and school settings.

Once you understand the sensory input your child is craving or avoiding, you can create a sensory diet specific to their needs using our BrainWorks Sensory Diet Program!!

Who can use the Sensory Symptoms Checklist?

Is the Sensory Symptoms Checklist Standardized?

No, this checklist is not meant to be used as a diagnostic measure. It is simply for informational purposes. It’s a great screening tool to be used for a quick identification of sensory preferences; whether the child is under-responsive, over-responsive or craving sensory input.

How long does it take to fill out and score?

It takes about 10-15 minutes to fill out and there is no scoring time! Simply look where the checkmarks land and they will tell you if the child is over or under responsive to that sense.
