VAN DER LINDE, Janine; FRANZSEN, Denise  e  BARNARD-ASHTON, Paula. The sensory profile: Comparative analysis of children with Specific Language Impairment, ADHD and autism. S. Afr. j. occup. ther. [online]. 2013, vol.43, n.3, pp.34-40. ISSN 2310-3833.

The Sensory Profile is useful in assisting with diagnosis of certain conditions which present with different sensory processing patterns. The purpose of this study was to compare the Sensory Profile for children with Specific Language Impairment (SU) (n=22) to a typical pattern, as well as the reported profiles of samples with autism and Attention Deficit/Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD). The SU sample had significantly more sensory processing difficulties than the typical population in all aspects. The Sensory Profile for both the autism and ADHD samples differed significantly from that of the SLI sample for H. Modulation Related to Body Position and Movement and Factor 6: Poor Registration. The SU sample showed fewer sensory processing problems except for J. Modulation of Sensory Input Affecting Emotional Responses, M. Behavioural Outcomes of Sensory Processing and Factor 9: Fine motor/perceptual indicating that this small sample of children with SLI did present with a unique Sensory Profile pattern.
