MATTOS, Jací C.; D'ANTINO, Maria Eloísa F.  e  CYSNEIROS, Roberta M.. Evidences of reliability and validity of the sensory assessment instrument Sensory Profile: a preliminary study. Psicol. teor. prat. [online]. 2019, vol.21, n.2, pp. 99-121. ISSN 1516-3687.

Considering the importance and need for studies that analyze the psychometric properties of assessment tools, this study investigated the psychometric parameters of reliability and validity of the Sensory Profile. The sample was composed of 336 children from the São Paulo metropolitan area, Brazil, aged from 5 to 10, from both genders, 298 of which did not have neurodevelopmental disorders and 38 of which had Autistic Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The tool showed satisfactory internal consistency with alpha values above 0.60 in most categories and factors. The mean scores of the sample of Brazilian children without neurodevelopmental disorders differed from the American normative sample. Children with ASD had lower sensory processing performance than children without neurodevelopmental disorders. The results showed that the Sensory Profile as translated and culturally adapted to Brazilian Portuguese pointed to the presence of sensory impairments in children with ASD investigated in this research.
