dc.description.abstractAbstract Sensory processing affects daily life activities including social participation. Numerous research studies have examined the effects of sensory processing on socialization in children with conditions, while limited research examined these effects in children from the general population including typical children. Drawing from a national sample, this study included 54 children aged 3-14, and investigated how sensory processing patterns predicted social skills and problem behaviors. This study focused on shared sensory patterns rather than sensory patterns specific to children with conditions. Multiple linear regression models showed that sensory processing predicted social skills and problem behaviors with sensory avoiding having significant negative partial effect on the social skills outcome. Canonical correlation models revealed strong relationships between sensory processing patterns, and social skills and problem behaviors domains. Findings suggest sensory processing preferences should be considered for all children, not just those with conditions, to enhance social skills and reduce problem behaviors. Keywords: sensory processing, social behavior, adaptive behavior
