Want to contribute to the "NEW"
SPM-2 Quick Tips
Diana and her Sensory Processing Measure (SPM) co-authors have been working on developing the upcoming SPM-2. The SPM-2 has gone through pilot studies and is now in the standardization process. Covering the lifespan from infants through adults the SPM-2 is slated to be completed 2018-2019.
Diana has also been developing the SPM-2 Quick Tips which will include tips for the SPM-2 Infant and Toddler, SPM-2 Preschool, SPM-2 Child (previously the SPM), SPM-2 Teen and SPM-2 Adult.
To explain a bit further, the SPM-2 Quick Tips is an intervention manual to promote data driven intervention, based on the results of the SPM-2 assessment.
If you are interested in contributing strategies/tips for the
SPM-2 Quick Tips, please send an email to email@example.com
It would be fun to add your ideas.

SPM Quick Tips WORKSHOP: Agenda Overview
The SPM Quick Tips and SPM-P Quick Tips are collections of intervention strategies that help answer the question, "What's next?" following administration of the SPMTM and SPM-PTM.
They satisfy 5 objectives:
1. Address the underlying deficits: modulation, postural control, perception, and praxis.
2. Provide family, staff, or peer training to increase awareness and share resources.
3. Teach self-advocacy as soon as it is appropriate to do so.
4. Adapt the task, materials, equipment, or environment.
5. Use cognitive or behavioral strategies to teach social skills and support social participation.
An ideal resource to share with teachers, parents, and other health care providers, the SPM Quick Tips and SPM-P Quick Tips help therapists effectively apply clinical reasoning to support children with sensory processing issues at school, home, and in their community.
The Quick Tips are available in two unique formats:
1. A downloadable PDF to be printed and spiral-bound to bring to team meetings.
2. An online format (Online Module) to be used in conjunction with online SPM and SPM-P administration and scoring, which allows you to generate unlimited customized intervention reports through a specialized sorting and filtering system.
