Understanding the relationship between sensory and emotion processing is a vital concern for evidence-based practice in therapy for ASD. In an ASD sample, we observed a correlation between alexithymia, a hypo-responsive sensory profile, and reduced brain activity in an empathy-processing region during emotional face processing. This work offers insights for OTs to identify individuals who may benefit from sensory-based therapy for social-emotional processing.
