Five Caveats about using a checklist The Out-Of-Sync Child (1995) by Carol Stock Kranowitz

The child with sensory dysfunction:

does not necessarily exhibit every characteristic
will show characteristics of a dysfunction one day but not the next.
may exhibit characteristics of a particular dysfunction yet not have that dysfunction.
may be both hypersensitive and hyposensitive.
Everyone has some sensory integration problems now and then, because no one is well regulated all the time.
