This study compared sensory processing as reported on the Sensory Profile among children diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD; Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, 5th ed.) and other disabilities (non-ASD). The non-ASD group demonstrated more sensory processing deficits, suggesting that occupational therapists address sensory processing deficits in various childhood diagnoses.
