Abstract
The purpose of this research study is to determine the similarities and differences in sensory processing symptoms that occur in children who have a diagnosis of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Low Vision, or Hearing Loss. The Sensory Processing Measure was selected as the assessment to be used in the study based upon background research and easy access for research participants. Out of the 36 parents/guardians that started the consent form and background screening, 19 respondents successfully completed the forms. The 19 participants were sent a link to the survey via email. Fifteen out of the 19 respondents, completed the Sensory Processing Measure survey. This study specifically utilized mean, range, raw scores, and T-scores to determine whether there was a correlation within of Autism Spectrum Disorder, Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder, Down Syndrome, Cerebral Palsy, Low Vision, or Hearing Loss and sensory processing symptoms. Also the statistical analysis of mean, range, raw scores, and T-scores were used to determine if there is a relationship between age, gender, and diagnoses with the prevalence of sensory processing symptoms.
