Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

There has been a lasting debate over whether sensory features are a core characteristic or comorbid phenomenon of ASD. This study explores whether sensory reactivity (hyper and hypo reactivity) may be a distinguishing characteristic of ASD. Understanding these phenotypic characteristics of ASD can help inform personalized OT intervention for sensory features as well as aid in early diagnosis.
