Abstract

Date Presented 03/27/20

This study focused on item development of an interoceptive measure grounded in Dunn’s Sensory Processing Framework and participation. Items were identified that correlated with their intended subscale. The resulting subscales had good internal consistency (α = .63 to .88). These initial findings will be valuable for the further development of an interoception scale that OTs can use for intervention planning.
