Dear patients, dear parents, dear supporters,

In several years of preparation, the SENS-E-Test for adults has been developed and successfully tested (Liffler P., Fölster-Holst R., Gieler U., Peters E., 2020). More than 75 percent of atopic diseases and certain mental disorders develop due to increased sensory processing sensitivity (colloquially: hypersensitivity). With the SENS-E-Test, we can detect high risk patients early and reliably and provide preventive advice and treatment.


We now know that sensory processing sensitivity is either congenital or shaped very early in the first years of life. That is why, three years ago, we started to develop corresponding tests for children, which are now due to be tested. We would be pleased if you would like to participate in this trial and share our work with your family and friends.


The SENS test for children has been designed in two variants, for infants and toddlers from 0 to 5 years and for children and adolescents from 6 to 17 years. The survey is of course anonymous. Instead of your name, please enter a code (number/letter combination with 5 characters). Please always use the same code for both the biographical questionnaire and the following SENS test.


If you, possibly both parents, completed the adult test (SENS-E-Test), these results could also contribute to insights into inheritance of the SPS. Please enter the same five-digit code in your test as you did for your children. Your test results will also be included anonymously in the study.


At the end of the test, you will receive your results immediately. The children's tests are preliminary results until the trial is completed.

The Analysis of the SENS-E test for adults showed that the preliminary results hardly differed at all from the final results after completion of the trial period. More than 30 points indicate an increased sensory processing sensitivity, from 40 points onwards a high SPS can be assumed.

Test for infants and toddlers

0 to 5 years

Test for children and adolescents

6 to 17 years

Adult test (testing completed)

Testing for adults has already been successfully completed.

Here you can still do the test as it was done in the study.
