Kolacz, Jacek; Raspa, Melissa; Heilman, Keri J.; Porges, Stephen W. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Individuals with fragile X syndrome (FXS), especially those co-diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder (ASD), face many sensory processing challenges. However, sensory processing measures informed by neurophysiology are lacking. This paper describes the development and psychometric properties of a parent/caregiver report, the Brain-Body Center…

Lane, Alison E.; Dennis, Simon J.; Geraghty, Maureen E. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2011
Distinct sensory processing (SP) subtypes in autism have been reported previously. This study sought to replicate the previous findings in an independent sample of thirty children diagnosed with an Autism Spectrum Disorder. Model-based cluster analysis of parent-reported sensory functioning (measured using the Short Sensory Profile) confirmed the…

Bizzell, Ebonee; Ross, Judith; Rosenthal, Carly; Dumont, Rachel; Schaaf, Roseann – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2020
We explored sensory features as distinguishing characteristics of Autism spectrum disorder (ASD). Four groups of males (n = 36): Six with 47, XYY syndrome and ASD (XYY+ASD), six with 47, XYY syndrome and no ASD (XYY-ASD), 12 with idiopathic ASD (ASD-I) and 12 typically developing (TYP). The short sensory profile (SSP) the sensory challenge…

Hand, Brittany N.; Lane, Alison E.; De Boeck, Paul; Basso, D. Michele; Nichols-Larsen, Deborah S.; Darragh, Amy R. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Understanding characteristics associated with burden in caregivers of children with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) is critical due to negative health consequences. We explored the association between child sensory subtype, sensory dimension scores, and caregiver burden. A national survey of caregivers of children with ASD aged 5-13 years was…

Simpson, Kate; Adams, Dawn; Alston-Knox, Clair; Heussler, Helen S.; Keen, Deb – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2019
The aim of this study was to identify sensory subtypes in children on the autism spectrum using the Short Sensory Profile-2 (SSP-2). Caregivers of children on the autism spectrum aged 4-11 years (n = 271) completed the SSP-2. Analysis using Dirichlet process mixture model identified a two-cluster model which provided the best solution to subtype…

Vonk, Jet M. J.; Obler, Loraine K.; Jonkers, Roel – Journal of Psycholinguistic Research, 2019
Effects of concreteness and grammatical class on lexical-semantic processing are well-documented, but the role of sensory-perceptual and sensory-motor features of concepts in underlying mechanisms producing these effects is relatively unknown. We hypothesized that processing dissimilarities in accuracy and response time performance in nouns versus…

Lane, Alison E.; Young, Robyn L.; Baker, Amy E. Z.; Angley, Manya T. – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2010
Children with autism are frequently observed to experience difficulties in sensory processing. This study examined specific patterns of sensory processing in 54 children with autistic disorder and their association with adaptive behavior. Model-based cluster analysis revealed three distinct sensory processing subtypes in autism. These subtypes…

Wrolstad, Ronald E. – Journal of Food Science Education, 2009
Oregon State Univ. has offered FST 102 "Maraschino Cherry" as a 1-credit orientation course since 1994. The maraschino cherry serves as a vehicle from which faculty give their disciplinary perspective, for example, the chemistry of the maraschino cherry, processing unit operations, microbiology and food safety, food law, sensory…

Tomchek, Scott D.; Little, Lauren M.; Myers, John; Dunn, Winnie – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2018
Given the heterogeneity of autism spectrum disorder (ASD), research has investigated how sensory features elucidate subtypes that enhance our understanding of etiology and tailored treatment approaches. Previous studies, however, have not integrated core developmental behaviors with sensory features in investigations of subtypes in ASD. Therefore,…

Beery, Thomas; Jørgensen, Kari Anne – Environmental Education Research, 2018
Given concerns for a severely diminished childhood experience of nature, coupled with alarm for a rapidly diminishing global biodiversity, this article considers the potential for childhood nature experience to be an important part of biodiversity understanding. Findings from two studies are integrated and presented as windows into childhood…

Hemati Alamdarloo, Ghorban; Shojaee, Setareh; Khaghaninejad, Mohammad Saber; Teymori Asfichi, Mohammad Mehdi – International Journal of Inclusive Education, 2021
The aim of the present study was to compare the relationships of siblings of children with sensory impairments and typically developing children. The statistical population of the study included all siblings of children with blindness, deafness, and typically developing children in Shiraz, Iran. The sample consisted of 91 siblings (23 siblings of…

Torres, David J.; Romero, Andres; Colgan, Wes, III; Ricoy, Ulises M. – Advances in Physiology Education, 2021
Undergraduates use a spike sorting routine developed in Octave to analyze the spiking activity generated from mechanical stimulation of spines of cockroach legs with the inexpensive SpikerBox amplifier and the free software Audacity. Students learn the procedures involved in handling the cockroaches and recording extracellular action potentials…

Elwin, Marie; Schröder, Agneta; Ek, Lena; Wallsten, Tuula; Kjellin, Lars – Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders, 2017
We identified clusters of atypical sensory functioning adults with ASC by hierarchical cluster analysis. A new scale for commonly self-reported sensory reactivity was used as a measure. In a low frequency group (n = 37), all subscale scores were relatively low, in particular atypical sensory/motor reactivity. In the intermediate group (n = 17)…

Sanderud, Jostein Rønning – Journal of Adventure Education and Outdoor Learning, 2020
This paper introduces the concept 'mutual experiences' to highlight how a researcher's sensory experiences may contribute to producing knowledge concerning children's bodily play in a natural environment. The article also demonstrates how photo-interviews can give a researcher virtual access to places and events where s/he cannot be present. The…

Crane, Laura; Goddard, Lorna; Pring, Linda – Autism: The International Journal of Research and Practice, 2009
Unusual sensory processing has been widely reported in autism spectrum disorders (ASDs); however, the majority of research in this area has focused on children. The present study assessed sensory processing in adults with ASD using the Adult/Adolescent Sensory Profile (AASP), a 60-item self-report questionnaire assessing levels of sensory…
