Your sensory profile results!

Now you have completed your profile, next book a strategy call with a sensory specialist Occupational Therapist to discuss your results and create an action plan to master your senses.

Your profile results are below. You can return to this page directly from your dashboard, this also provides access to your account and the sensory shop.

Your sensory profile is based on how you were feeling today. Take the assessment again at any time to compare results between assessments taken on different days and in relation to different situations.

These are your sensory results, displayed in order of dominance.

Visual Avoider

Visual - bright lights

Bright lights in shopping centres and sunny days are just not your thing. You find flashing lights and moving lights too much and do all you can to avoid these places and situations. Images may fragment and distort for you. You may find it hard to make and maintain eye contact. If it’s sunny or bright you blink or shut your eyes. You may struggle to fall asleep if your room is not in complete darkness. You may experience headaches and sickness when exposed to these conditions.

Audio Seeker

Audio - silence

The noisier the better right? You perhaps like to make noises yourself with your mouth, or banging an item, or clicking something repeatedly. Sound Seekers often love the noise of a crowd, the TV up loud and music on full-blast. Maybe you love audiobooks and listening to stories rather than reading them. You might say things over and over that you like the sound of. It could make you feel excited, or calm – it could be either, but you love it and need to satisfy that urge for noise.

Mixed Scent

Scent - breathe it all in

You have a mixed profile which can mean a number of different things. If you do have sensory processing difficulties what it probably means is … Scent challenges affect you in two different ways. You can be both over sensitive and undersensitive to scent & smell. This can also change depending on your circumstances and environment. For example, if you are ill or overtired your senses can become heightened. If you are well-rested and calm things may not be so overwhelming. In more stressful environments like school, work or public places you may find your sensitivity is different to being in a calm and safe place like home. Each day can be different and depending on what’s happening and where you are. Your seeking and avoiding behaviours will help you to stay regulated.

Touch Avoider

Touch - touchy-feely and personal space

Comfort is king for you and knowing what’s coming next and you don’t like your personal space being infringed. Avoiding certain textures or physical stimuli is common with SPD and can make everyday life very difficult. Being a Touch Avoider may mean you cannot stand certain fabrics on your skin – it may physically hurt and feel like burning and labels can feel super itchy uncomfortable. You hate when people touch you and it can send what feels like bolts through your body. You don’t enjoy being hugged and may recoil from physical touch.

Oral Seeker

Oral - unknown or unwelcome tastes and textures

You tend to have a bland diet and lean towards always eating the same things which can lead to something called a ‘restrictive diet’. You might have a preference for one single thing such as only eating smooth textured food; crunchy or dry finger foods; or bland-coloured foods. Perhaps you dread going out to eat with friends or your child visiting someone else’s house as a result. You may worry about the nutrition you or your child is getting but cannot get yourself or the person you care for to expand their palate.

Vestibular Avoider

Vestibular - coordination and balance

Sports is probably not your thing – you don’t enjoy it and you find it hard. Controlling and coordinating your body movements is tough and you may have trouble with balance and being able to stop suddenly when running. Perhaps you are prone to motion sickness. You could enjoy sitting on the floor and holding onto people. You perhaps are seen as destructive with toys or objects and can be rough physically with people.

Proprioception Avoider

Proprioception - over defensive

You are sensory defensive when it comes to movement. You may avoid things that require lots of movement for fear of becoming uncomfortable. So you might avoid busy places so as not to bash into people, or you might walk around the edges of a room rather than straight through the middle. You may prefer to wear baggy clothing or bigger shoes as you don’t like the restrictiveness this can cause.

Mixed Interoception

Interoception - can you hear what your body is telling you?

You have a mixed profile which can mean a number of different things. If you do have sensory processing difficulties what it probably means is … Interoceptive challenges affect you in two different ways. You can be both over sensitive and undersensitive to your internal sense. This can also change depending on your circumstances and environment. For example, if you are ill or overtired your senses can become heightened. If you are well-rested and calm things may not be so overwhelming. In more stressful environments like school, work or public places you may find your sensitivity is different to being in a calm and safe place like home. Each day can be different and depending on what’s happening and where you are. Your seeking and avoiding behaviours will help you to stay regulated.
