Statistical modeling analysis reveal that attention skills mediate the relationship between brain measures of sensory processing (measured by electroencephalography) and behavioral sensory processing in young adults with and without autism. Thus, attention abilities facilitate brain mechanisms to better process sensory stimuli to perform everyday sensory processing activities and social skills. Results suggest that therapy emphasizing attention skills in autism can modify sensory and social participation.
