Abstract
Background: Sensory processing disorder (SPD) “affects the way the brain interprets the information that comes in and the response that follows, causing emotional, motor, and other reactions that are inappropriate and extreme.
Aim: The purpose of this study is to the prevalence of sensory processing dysfunction in 3-11years old normal school going children inIndia.
Method: A cross-sectional study design was chosen for this study. A total 400 (M=200, F=200) Subjects were recruited randomly from five different primary schools of Surat, India. Short Sensory Profile (SSP) measure was used to assess the sensory processing dysfunctions.
Results: Based on SSP scores, out of 400 children, 29 % (116) showed typical performance, 15.3% (61) probable difference, 55.8 % (223) definite difference. The most prevalent sensory processing dysfunctions involved the Low energy/weak (56%), Movement sensitivity (47.8%), tactile sensitivity (46.3%) and Under-responsive/seek sensation (41%)
Conclusion: A short sensory profile scores can be used identify the sensory integration deficit in children, which will help to provide appropriate intervention to avoid or minimize any health complications.
