Despite the coexistence of sensory modulation disorder (SMD), anxiety, and altered interoceptive awareness (AIA) in adults, correlations between these constructs are limited in existing literature. This study examined a sample of over 150 typical adults and found moderate correlations between SMD, anxiety, AIA, and quality of life. Understanding correlations between these constructs may contribute to a better understanding of impact on occupations and more efficacious OT interventions.
