Physical activity (PA) promotes children’s health. While sensory processing is integral to motor output, research regarding PA in children with sensory processing challenges is sparse.
This study aimed to examine the PA pattern and its association with daily life participation of children with sensory processing challenges.
Forty-four children ages 5 to 7 years were divided into the study group (children with sensory processing challenges; n = 22; 16 males) and an age-matched typically developing control group (n = 22; nine males). Parents completed the Short Sensory Profile, a demographic questionnaire, Participation in Childhood Occupations Questionnaire, and Participation in Physical Activity and Sedentary Behavior Questionnaire–Modified. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics and correlational analysis.
Structured PA was reported in 45% and 77% of the study and control groups, respectively (p = .030). In the study group, the level of participation in PA was found to be significantly correlated with play and leisure activities.
Promoting structured and group PA opportunities may be important for children with sensory processing challenges.
