OBJECTIVES The purpose of this study was to determine which factors on the Sensory Profile, a measure of children's responses to commonly occurring sensory experiences, best discriminate among children with autism or pervasive developmental disorder (PDD), children with attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), and children without disabilities. METHOD Data for three groups of children 3 to 15 years of age were used: 38 children with autism or PDD, 61 with ADHD, and 1,075 without… Expand
Discriminant Validity of the Sensory Profile in Australian Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder
TLDR
The study findings indicate that the Sensory Profile can be used with confidence in cross-cultural contexts, such as Australia, and evidence of discriminant validity of Sensory profile scores between children with ASD and children with typical development is provided. Expand

TLDR
Findings from the study suggest that young children with autism have deficits in a variety of sensory processing abilities as measured by the Sensory Profile. Expand
A comparison of patterns of sensory processing in children with and without developmental disabilities.
TLDR
Age was a significant cofounding factor in evaluating sensory processing and major differences in sensory processing issues between children with either ASD or ADHD were failed to identify. Expand

TLDR
These findings begin to confirm the prevalence and types of sensory processing impairments in autism and are needed to more clearly define patterns of sensoryprocessing in people with ASD. Expand

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
Patterns of Sensory Processing in Children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder
The researchers conducted this study to compare the sensory responses of children whose primary diagnosis was Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) and children without disabilities on theExpand

In this article, we examine the extent to which children with autism and children with learning difficulties can be discriminated from their responses to different patterns of sensory stimuli. UsingExpand

TLDR
There were no meaningful gender differences on the revised Sensory Profile, and only 2 items approached a meaningful difference related to age when comparing younger and older children. Expand

TLDR
Factor analysis revealed nine discreet factors that indicate sensory modulation and responsiveness that may be related to intensity or duration of behaviors as they begin to interfere with functional performance in daily life. Expand

TLDR
Two thirds of the items on the Sensory Profile were uncommon for typical children and thus may contribute useful information about children with disabilities who respond to these sensory events. Expand
Domains of the childhood autism rating scale: Relevance for diagnosis and treatment
TLDR
Cross-sectional analyses demonstrated that autistic subjects were distinguished from subjects with pervasive developmental disorders and nonpervasive developmental disorders by higher scores on SI, and NE was most malleable and apparently sensitive to the effects of treatment. Expand
Frontal lobe functions in attention deficit disorder with and without hyperactivity: A review and research report
TLDR
While both types of ADD share some apparent similarities in deficits on a few frontal lobe tests in this study, the totality of existing findings suggests an additional problem with perceptual-motor speed and processing in the ADD/-H group. Expand
Hyper-responsivity to touch and vestibular stimuli as a predictor of positive response to sensory integration procedures by autistic children.
TLDR
Results suggest that children who registered sensory input but failed to modulate it responded better to therapy than those who were hypo-responsive or failed to orient to sensory input. Expand

TLDR
On a visual search task, only the HA children showed a specific processing deficit in performance, confirming the diagnostic value of such a deficit for hyperactivity, differentiating it from conduct disorder. Expand

TLDR
Once considered to be encountered only rarely in practice, autism now is thought to be part of a spectrum of related conditions that are much more common than previously thought. Expand

TLDR
There is evidence for a differential sensitivity in TD, but not an inhibition deficit, and a negative correlation between TD and developmental age is found. Expand
