Abstract

This study aimed to explore the sensory processing profiles of children with the spectrum
of optic nerve hypoplasia (ONH). Caregivers completed the Short Sensory Profile (SSP), the
Social Communication Questionnaire (SCQ), and the Vineland Adaptive Behaviour Scale (VABS) interview. The study demonstrated that children with ONH present with sensory integration dysfunction (SID), in their intact senses, and that autistic spectrum condition (ASC) was the best predictor of SID, rather than visual loss, or level of intellectual disability in these children. The results indicate that assessment and monitoring of SID in children with ONH is crucial.
