Abstract

AIM OF THE STUDY: To find the impact of Sensory integration on sleep disturbance among children with sensory processing disorder. METHODS: This study was done to find the impact of sensory integration on sleep disturbance among children with sensory processing disorder and for this purpose 20 SPD children with sleep disturbance were assigned according to convenience into the experimental and control group. There were 8 males and 2 girls in the experimental group and 8 boys and 2 girls in the control group. Dunn’s sensory profile was used to measure sensory issues, Children sleep habit questionnaire to measure sleep disturbance and Visual Analogue Scale to measure child sleep quality and parents satisfaction. RESULTS: Pre test score in experimental group in CSHQ had a mean value of 56.10, and control group had 56.70. The post test results of the experimental group had a mean value of 37.90 and the control group had 55.70. Post test of experimental group with a value of 0.005 (<0.05) indicating reduction in sleep disturbances. Pre test score in experimental group had a mean value of 45 n VAS, and control group had 44. The post test results of the experimental group had a mean value of 80 and the control group had 47. Post test of experimental group with a value of 0.004 (<0.05) indicating improvement in children sleep quality. Pre test score in experimental group had a mean value of 52 in VAS, and control group had 46. The post test results of the experimental group had a mean value of 84 and the control group had 49. Post test of experimental group with a value of 0.004 (<0.05) indicating increase in parents satisfaction. There is significant difference in sensory processing skill as measured by sensory profile in experimental group. CONCLUSION: This can be summarized by the findings which prove that the sensory integration for child with sleep disturbance in experimental group varied from child with sleep disturbance of control group by showing a little improvement in their sleep quality.
