Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

The study’s aim is to assess sustained attention in the presence of different tactile stimuli among children with and without sensory modulation disorder. The Short Sensory Profile 2 was used for group allocation. Sustained attention was measured by an electrophysiological tool. Significant differences in sustained attention were found between different tactile stimuli and between groups. The results enable development of tailored interventions that rely on the child’s brain engagement.
