This study examined the relationship between behaviors and mild illness in children ages 3-7 yrs. with sensory processing disorder. Caregivers completed a survey packet, including the Short Sensory Profile and the Child Behavior Checklist 1 1/2-5, based on their childrens' behaviors during a time of health and a time of mild illness. Significant correlations between measure scores were found. Mean SSP scores were significantly lower for ill children and mean CBCL scores were significantly higher for ill children. Classification scores on both measures indicated an increase in the severity of behaviors during times of illness. Findings suggest that mild illness may increase the frequency and severity of problematic behaviors and behavioral responses to stimuli in young children with sensory processing disorder.
