OBJECTIVE The purpose of this study was to compare parents' perceptions of the responses of their preschool children, with and without attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), to sensory events in daily life in Israel. In addition, the relationship between levels of hyperactivity and sensory deficits was examined. METHOD The Sensory Profile Questionnaire (SP) was completed by mothers of forty-eight 4- to 6-year-old children with ADHD, and mothers of 46 children without disabilities. A…

Sensory processing abilities of children with ADHD
TLDR
Children with ADHD may present sensory processing impairments, which may contribute to the inappropriate behavioural and learning responses displayed by children with ADHD, and the importance of understanding the sensory processing difficulties is suggested.
Survey of Behavioral Problems and Sensory Processing in Children with Attention Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
The findings of this study showed that some behaviors in children with ADHD could be due to certain defects in their sensory processing, and this was shown to be related to attention deficit/hyperactivity disorder.
The relationship between sensory processing and behavior in children with attention deficit disorder and hyperactivity 7 to 10 years old
TLDR
T-test results show that the difference between the means of two groups in sensory seeking, emotional reactivity, and low endurance /muscle is higher than in normal matched groups.
Sensory processing in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder and high-functioning autism
TLDR
It was showed that children in high-functioning autism and normal sensory processes act different and this sensory processing dysfunction affects on child's daily life in areas such as play, academic skills, peer relationships, and self-help activities.
Assessing Sensory Processing Problems in Children With and Without Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
The results suggest the importance of assessing sensory processing issues in children with ADHD to guide in the intervention process.
The Effects of Sensory Processing Disorder in Relation to Praxis Skills in Young Children with Learning Disabilities and/or Attention Disorders
The purpose of this study was to explore if children with learning disabilities (LD) and/or attention disorders experienced praxis deficits due to sensory processing disorder (SPD). Fourteen
The Contribution of Sensory Sensitivity to Emotional Lability in Children with ADHD Symptoms
TLDR
Clinicians treating children with ADHD symptoms and emotional lability should consider assessing for sensory sensitivity as integration of multi-sensory techniques or referral to concurrent occupational therapy may significantly improve treatment outcomes and quality of life for these children and their families.

Patterns of Sensory Processing in Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
TLDR
Children with ADHD differed significantly from children without disabilities in their sensory responsiveness based on Sensory Profile results, which can contribute to diagnostic and program planning processes and increase understanding of the nature of the disorder of ADHD.

TLDR
The results suggest that it may be helpful for therapists to consider the areas of praxis and vestibular processing in the evaluation and treatment of children with ADHD and that in clinical practice, it would be difficult to distinguishChildren with ADHD from those without on the basis of their SIPT scores.

TLDR
Preschool-age children with ADHD are at significant risk for behavioral, social, familial, and academic difficulties relative to their normal counterparts.

TLDR
The Sensory Profile is useful for discriminating certain groups of children with disabilities and is accurately classified into disability categories with the factors described by previous authors, suggesting that patterns of behavior associated with certain developmental disorders are reflected in populations of children without disabilities.

TLDR
The Sensory Profile can provide information about the sensory processing skills of children with autism to assist occupational therapists in assessing and planning intervention for these children.
Attention deficits and clumsiness in Swedish 7‐year‐old children
TLDR
The diagnosis of DAMP had a stronger association with classroom dysfunction and with high Conners scores than did diagnoses of ADHD or DCD, and it was concluded that DAMP may be a clinically valid diagnostic construct.
Somatosensory functioning in children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder
TLDR
The results show that the ADHD children were less skilled on suprathreshold, but not on threshold tasks than were the controls, and some aspects of somatosensory processing by ADHD children are deficient.

TLDR
This lecture reviews sensory processing literature and proposes relationships between sensory processing and temperament and personality traits, and outlines parameters for developing best practice that supports interventions based on this knowledge.
