Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This study investigated the relationship between sensory reactivity and FDD. Parents of three- to six-year-old children with and without FDD completed two questionnaires: the Toileting Habit Profile Questionnaire-Revised and the Short Sensory Profile. Children with FDD had higher levels of sensory hyper-reactivity. Screening for sensory hyper-reactivity may be important when working with children with FDD who have difficulty participating in toileting routines.
