Abstract

Date Presented 4/7/2016

Item Response Theory analyses revealed that some items on the Short Sensory Profile are highly informative in determining sensory subtypes. It may be possible to identify sensory subtypes using a reduced number of items, thereby improving the clinical utility of subtyping for assessing and describing sensory difficulties.
