Sensory processing is recognized as impacting participation for preschool children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Little research exists to examine the impact of the sensory environment on the participation patterns of children with ASD, specifically from a contextual standpoint. The researchers in this study examined the viewpoint of teachers and occupational therapists on the sensory-related environmental barriers to participation within the preschool context. Qualitative descriptive… Expand
Reliability of the Participation and Sensory Environment Questionnaire: Teacher Version
TLDR
Initial reliability of PSEQ-TV as an instrument that can be used to identify sensory environmental barriers within the preschool setting to target during interventions to increase participation is indicated. Expand

TLDR
Findings have implications for how preschool-age children with ASD typically engage in daily activities and suggest that some sensory processing patterns may be associated with participation in social activities. Expand
Construct Validity of the Participation and Sensory Environment Questionnaire–Teacher Version
The Participation and Sensory Environment Questionnaire–Teacher Version (PSEQ-TV) is a teacher report questionnaire designed to examine the impact of the sensory environment on participation forExpand
The Effect of Sensory Integration Therapy on Occupational Performance in Children With Autism
TLDR
The intervention group showed significantly greater improvement in all the SCOPE domains, as well as in all of the SP domains, except for the “emotional reactions” and ”emotional/social responses” domains, (p < .05). Expand
An evaluation of sensory processing training on the competence, confidence and practice of teachers working with children with autism
Purpose At present, there is no research to support teachers’ use of sensory interventions in the classroom. This study aims to investigate the extent to how participation in a sensory processingExpand
Implications of Sensory Processing and Attentional Differences Associated With Autism in Academic Settings: An Integrative Review
TLDR
A brief review of the current literature on sensory processing and attention in ASD is provided, how sensory and attentional functions affect academic outcomes in both neurotypical and ASD learners are surveyed, and potential accommodations/interventions for students with ASD are suggested. Expand
Reliability of the Participation and Sensory Environment Questionnaire: Community Scales.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate that the P-SEQ: Community Scales is a reliable tool that can be used to assess the impact of sensory environment's impact on participation in community activities. Expand

TLDR
The Participation and Sensory Environment Questionnaire-Home Scale is a parent-report assessment designed to evaluate the impact of the sensory environment on young children's participation in home-based activities and can be used to plan and evaluate occupational therapy interventions that aim to reduce sensory processing-related barriers to children's completion of developmentally salient activities.

A comparative study of sensory processing in children with and without Autism Spectrum Disorder in the home and classroom environments.
TLDR
The results suggest that the context-specific qualities found in children with ASD point out the need to receive information from both parents and teachers during the sensory profile assessment process, and use context- specific assessments. Expand
Participation Patterns in Preschool Children with an Autism Spectrum Disorder
An understanding of participation patterns in preschool-aged children with an autism spectrum disorder will allow the occupation therapy practitioner to focus on goals relevant to the child andExpand
A Pilot Study Examining Activity Participation, Sensory Responsiveness, and Competence in Children with High Functioning Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
Children demonstrating more frequent Sensory Sensitivity and Sensory Avoiding had significantly lower competence scores than children with fewer behaviors in these domains, suggesting that sensory responsiveness may impact the ability to participate successfully. Expand
Activity participation among children with autism spectrum disorder.
TLDR
A six-factor model best characterized activity participation among the school-age children with ASD, and child characteristics and family demographics were differentially associated with HCAS dimensions. Expand

Background: This study explored the key physical and social factors within the home environment that influence the participation of children with an ASD in home activities. Method: Step 1 used aExpand
Effectiveness of therapy ball chairs on classroom participation in children with autism spectrum disorders.
TLDR
The ball chair appeared to have a positive effect on in-seat behavior for the child who had the most extreme-proprioceptive-seeking behaviors and children with poor postural stability were less engaged when sitting on the therapy ball chair. Expand
Perceived environmental restrictions for the participation of children with mild developmental disabilities.
TLDR
Results show that environmental factors have significant slight contribution to child's independence in participation beyond other predictors (i.e. personal factors). Expand

TLDR
Children who have difficulty processing verbal instructions in noisy environments and who often focus on sensory-seeking behaviors appear more likely to underachieve academically. Expand
Parent perspectives to inform development of measures of children's participation and environment.
TLDR
Findings have informed the development of a parent-report measure that explicitly links participation and environmental factors specific to home, school, and community settings and should situate the child's participation in real-life contexts. Expand
