The Sensory Matrix is an 8-10 page report generated from the Sensory Systems Checklist, designed by Annemarie Lombard. It measures all the sensory systems (smell/taste, visual, touch, auditory, movement and multisensory) to determine the individual’s responses and resultant thresholds for each system. Strategies are then aligned based on the results to guide individuals towards optimising their work space and stress management tools. Example: someone with low auditory thresholds needs to work in a quieter corner and turn down ringer volumes on phones. They will excel in small groups where detail orientated tasks are performed.
The Sensory Matrix is used as a performance guidance tool to assist individuals towards knowing what type of input to increase and what to decrease for greater success in the workplace.
