Abstract

Date Presented 03/26/20

The 2011 Survey of Pathways to Diagnosis and Services includes 15 sensory items that could inform tailored therapeutic interventions established by OTs. However, these items have not been validated as a measure. Based on psychometric analyses, this study concluded that all 15 items were adequately explained by the general sensory factor and one of four sensory factors: (1) sensory seeking; (2) sensory avoidant; (3) disorganized/overreactive; and (4) repetitive behaviors.
