Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

A descriptive correlation study examined relationships between temperament, effortful control, executive function, and sensory-processing behavior. Outcomes from three standardized questionnaires in children between 7.0 and 10.11 years indicated that statistically significant associations between typical sensory responses were related to abilities for executive function and effortful control, whereas, sensory reactivity was related to decreased abilities for executive function and effortful control.
