Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Sensory-processing challenges are measured by caregiver report and clinician observation and affect many people with autism spectrum disorder and their caregivers. It is unclear how caregiver stress influences the correlation between scores on caregiver reports and observational measures. The present analysis explored correlations between two formats of tools to assess sensory processing and indicated that caregiver stress moderates the association between sensory-seeking scores on the measures.
