Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

This scoping review examined research on the association between sensory processing and internalizing behavior among individuals ages 1-22 years. Findings suggest that sensory processing sensitivity was positively associated with various conditions, personality characteristics, aspects of family life, anxiety, and mental health difficulties. Findings from this scoping review may inform intervention approaches that target the sensory processing underpinnings of internalizing behaviors.
