Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

The purpose of this study is to explore if children with learning disabilities experience praxis deficits due to sensory processing disorder. Results suggest that individuals with learning disabilities and ADHD score much more than others on movement processing and body positioning processing. Relationships between praxis skills and sensory processing were inconclusive.
