The Applicability of the Short Sensory Profile for Screening Sensory Processing Disorders among Israeli Children
Engel-Yeger, Batya
International Journal of Rehabilitation Research, v33 n4 p311-318 Dec 2010
The objective of this study was to examine the applicability of the short sensory profile (SSP) for screening sensory processing disorders (SPDs) among typical children in Israel, and to evaluate the relationship between SPDs and socio-demographic parameters. Participants were 395 Israeli children, aged 3 years to 10 years 11 months, with typical development. Parents of all children completed the SSP. Factor analysis found similarity between the Hebrew version of the SSP and the original SSP. About 15% of the children had SPD. Differences between age groups and sexes were found in several SSP sections. In conclusion, typical children may have SPD. The SSP may be appropriate for screening SPD among Israeli children. These results should be strengthened by additional studies conducted on children with typical development as well as children with disabilities in which sensory processing problems are involved.
