Abstract

Date Presented 4/18/2015

Retentive fecal incontinence (RFI) is a common disorder in children that can affect participation. Children with treatment-resistant RFI show a greater degree of sensory overresponsivity (SOR) than typically developing children. The Toilet Habit Profile Questionnaire (THPQ) effectively discriminates between children with RFI and typically developing children.
