Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

This poster will present a study that gathered sensory profile data for 408 children who experienced early adversity. Results characterize sensory processing behaviors of this population, offering participants insights about sensory characteristics and type of maltreatment, as well as length of exposure to maltreatment. Findings can help guide OT assessment and intervention for children who experience early adversity.
