OBJECTIVE This article describes a series of studies designed to evaluate the reliability and validity of the Adult Sensory Profile. [] Key MethodMETHOD Expert judges evaluated the construct validity of the items. Coefficient alpha, factor analysis, and correlations of items with subscales determined item reliability, using data from 615 adult sensory profiles. A subsample of 20 adults furnished skin conductance data.

ASP-CV is reliable and valid to measure sensory processing functions of older Hong Kong Chinese people and the known-groups method was supported, in which participants with dementia differed significantly from their healthy counterparts.

Cross-cultural adaptation, reliability, and validity of the Turkish Adult Sensory Processing Scale

The ASPS-T is reliable and valid for analysing sensory processing patterns of adults in the Turkish population, illustrating high internal consistency and excellent reliability of the scale.

Measuring psychometric characteristics of the elderly sensory responsivity questionnaire– A tool for screening sensory processing difficulties in elderly adults

The psychometric characteristics of the Elderly Adult Sensory Sensitivity Questionnaire (ESRQ) - an adapted version of the Sensory Responsiveness Questionnaires (SRQ) version II - may serve as a suitable tool for screening sensory processing difficulties in the elderly.

Internal Consistency and Item Analysis of the Persian Version of the Child Sensory Profile 2 in Vulnerable Populations

The Persian version of the child sensory profile 2 is a valid (discrimination with vulnerable populations) and reliable (internal consistency) tool for assessing sensory processing.

Validating the Adolescent/Adult Sensory Profile and Examining its Ability to Screen Sensory Processing Difficulties among Israeli People

The Hebrew version of the Adolescent/Adult Sensory Profile was found to be valid and succeeded in profiling sensory processing difficulties along the life span of typical Israeli adolescents and adults.

Reliability and validity study of Turkish version of Adolescent/Adult Sensory Profile

The Turkish version of the AASP questionnaire is a reliable and a valid questionnaire for the Turkish population and showed high internal consistency and test–retest reliability.

3 stages of construction of the Sensory Over-Responsivity (SensOR) Scales are described: instrument development, reliability and validity analyses, and cross-validation on a new sample.

The Relationship Between Sensory Processing and Attachment Patterns: A Scoping Review.

Findings indicate empirical relationships between sensory processing and attachment constructs in children and adults that warrant further investigation and should be considered when planning interventions.

Adult Attachment, Sensory Processing, and Distress in Healthy Adults.

Findings suggest that developing active coping approaches to deal with sensory sensitivities may be a valuable way to minimize distress.

Does sensory gating vary according to the neurological threshold axis of Dunn's four quadrant model in typical adults?

Evidence is provided to support the claim that a relationship exists between sensory gating and sensory processing patterns along the neurological threshold with gating ability and results did show trends in support of the direction of the hypotheses.
