Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Reports support the hypothesis that sensory issues may be related to atypical defecation habits in children. Practice in this area is limited by the lack of validated measures. We used Rasch analysis, directed content analysis, and expert review to validate the Toileting Habit Profile Questionnaire (THPQ). After adjusting items, we examined the construct validity of the revised version (THPQ-R). The THPQ-R appears to capture challenging defecation behaviors related to sensory over-reactivity.
