Abstract

Date Presented 04/04/19

Current research indicates that a correlation exists neurologically among anxiety, sensory over responsively, GI dysfunction, and behavior. To gain better understanding of correlations among SPD and GI dysfunction, and how they impact family occupations, assessments were given to parents of children 18 months through 12 years who were seen for GI dysfunction at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. Preliminary results indicate positive correlations among SPD, GI dysfunction, and parent stress.
