A quick way of providing standardized ovservations of sensory-based motor skills.

The SOSI-M is a new standardized assessment of sensory-based motor skills, based in Ayres Clinical Observations. The SOSI-M provides a quick, yet comprehensive way to reliably assess the proprioceptive and vestibular skills underlying motor performance in school-aged children.
The SOSI-M includes 14 sets of administered items that assess proprioception, vestibular processing, motor planning, and postural control:
  • Romberg (firm and soft surface, eyes open and closed)
  • Heel to Toe (firm and soft surface, eyes open and closed)
  • Standing on One Foot (eyes open and closed)
  • Modified Postural Schilder’s Arm Extension Test
  • Skipping
  • Series of Jumps (jumping jacks; symmetric and reciprocal stride jumps)
  • High Kneeling (right and left weight shift and reach)
  • Antigravity Extension
  • Antigravity Flexion
  • Ocular Movements (vertical and horizontal)
  • Slow Ramp Movements
  • Sequential Finger Touching
  • Diadochokinesis (right, left, and bilateral)
  • Projected Actions in Time and Space (ball in the air and ball against the wall)
Developed by well-regarded expers in sensory integration, the SOSI-M requires just a few easy-to-use materials to administer.  The test kit comes with the same specialized close-cell foam balance pad that was used in the standardization studies, so you have a consisten, easily portable, soft surface mat for the Romberg and Heel to Toe tasks.
Comprehensive Observations of Proprioception (COP-R)
In conjunction with the SOSI-M, the COP-R, a behavioral observation tool, was developed to provide essential information about a child’s proprioceptive processing, such as muscle tone, joint hypermobility, ankle strategies, postural control, grading of force, and fluidity of movement.. The COP-R is comprised of 18 items and compares a child’s observed skills to typical children their age. This tool provides information about the motor and behavioral skills linked to proprioceptive processing. It is one of the first tools to provide a systematic way to measure proprioception in a clinical setting.
Administration and Scoring
The SOSI-M require minimal set up, and can be administered in 20-40 minutes.  Easy to follow step-by-step instructions and clear scoring criteria make the SOSI-M an ideal choice for busy caseloads.
SOSI-M kit includes: Manual, Spanish Administration Instructions, Quick Start Administration Guide, 25 Record Forms, 25 Comprehensive Observations of Proprioception (COP-R) Forms, one 15 cm and one 20 cm square, one 8-1/2 x 11 projected actions target, tennis ball, pencil with pencil topper, stopwatch, tote bag and Airex foam mat.
Also included in each kit: A redemption code card for 10 free SOSI-M scoring reports and 10 free COP-R scoring reports from ATPOnline.
