Abstract

The influence on sensory processing characteristics on occupational choices among the typical population has not been thoroughly studied. The purpose of this study was to understand the connection between the experiential characteristics of pleasurable occupations and sensory processing characteristics in typical adults utilizing two existing surveys. Cluster analysis on 451 respondents yielded six clusters establishing potential links between activity choices and sensory processing patterns.
