Sensory Processing in Adults with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Authored by Crane, L., Goddard L., and Pring L. in Autism, Volume 13, Issue 3, p. 215-228, (2009).

Article summary (posted Oct 19, 2010):


Sensory processing disorder may persist in adults with autism and perhaps should be addressed with treatment.

The aim of this study was to see if sensory processing disorder was common in adults with autism. This study compared levels of sensory processing in adults with autism with an age and IQ score matched group using a self-report measure of sensory processing (Adult/Adolescent Sensory Profile – AASP). The authors found that adults with autism report high levels of sensory response compared to the control group. This is in contrast to a study that found that sensory processing issues decreased as children with autism became adults. The authors note that people with autism varied quite a bit with regards to their sensory processing disorder.
