Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

An observation tool was developed and used to record children’s responses to sensory stimuli during play in the community setting. Results suggest significant relationships between high intensity tactile and movement stimuli, and affect. These findings are important for helping to better understand a child’s sensory processing in natural play environments, selecting activities based on sensory properties, and supporting the development of sensory friendly times in the community.
