English term or phrase:Definite Difference
I have a question concerning the use of the sensory profile in research. I am interested in using it as a screening tool to identify children with sensory processing difficulties. Am I better to use the long form of the Sensory Profile or the Short Sensory Profile? I am tempted to use the SSP since it is quicker to complete and you obtain a Total Score. I am thinking of using the Total score of the SSP and include all children who perform in the Probably Difference and the Definite Difference range as the inclusion criteria. However, if I am unable to get a Total Score due to items that could not be scored (see above) how am I best to get around this for research screening purposes?
A. we actually designed the Short Sensory Profile for research and screening protocols because the items are VERY discriminating. If you cannot get a total score,,, then consider setting a criteria for how many 'probable' or 'definite' differences will matter to you on the subsections.
