Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

A retrospective analysis of published studies examining sensory-processing preferences of individuals with psychiatric conditions compared the scores reported in the studies to normative values. The results revealed a pattern of greater sensory sensitivity, sensation avoiding, and low registration, and less sensation-seeking among individuals with a psychiatric condition. These findings can contribute to condition-specific sensory-based interventions in the context of occupational performance.
