A comparison between children with and without posttraumatic stress (PTS) symptoms found that children with PTS symptoms are at increased risk for sensory processing deficits in various sensory modalities, over and above the core symptoms of posttraumatic stress disorder. These results emphasize that sensory processing should be incorporated into the routine evaluation of this population and point to the importance of OT trauma-informed intervention programs, emphasizing the sensory component of regulation.
