Description

The Questionnaire for the Measurement of Sensory Responsiveness (QMSR) is a culturally sensitive caregiver report for use in Argentina. This study determined whether the QMSR adequately assesses parental perceptions of sensory processing and responsivity (SPR) in children with autism spectrum disorder (AUT), whether SPR varies between age groups, and to examine test- retest reliability.

Comments

Methods: The researchers collected QMSR data from 690 families in Argentina with children ages four to ten years, through convenience and snowball sampling methods.

Results: Data analysis with a two-way MANOVA demonstrated that there was a statistically significant difference in the QMSR scores of children with autism spectrum disorder compared to the sample of children who were typicallydeveloping. Pearson’s Correlationrevealed a strong correlation between the initial test and retest scores of the QMSR, r = .998.

Conclusion: Overall, this study found the QMSR to be a valid and reliable assessment tool for measuring sensory responsivity in children with autism living in Argentina.
