Abstract

Date Presented 03/28/20

Long-term follow-up of 64 children with sensory-processing challenges found that over half scored as typical on an adult sensory history 8 to 32 years later. Adult anxiety and depression was common, especially in females, and was correlated with the most severe adult sensory-processing challenges. This study provides preliminary prognosis information for childhood sensory-processing challenges.
