Type C ($1200)

The SIPT consists of 17 subtests that evaluate sensory processing deficits related to learning, behavior, and motor difficulties. The SIPT measures visual, tactile, and kinesthetic perception as well as motor planning. Results from this test delineate specific types of processing challenges which may be contributing to difficulties in daily life. In addition to the SIPT, structured clinical observations will be performed as well.
