Abstract

Date Presented 04/06/19

Reports indicate that sensory issues may be related to atypical defecation habits in some children. Practice in this area is limited by the lack of validated measures. The THPQ-R appears to capture defecation behaviors related to sensory over-reactivity. While preliminary studies regarding the THPQ-R are promising, further examination of its validity is warranted. In this study, we examined discriminative and concurrent validity.
