Abstract

This study aimed to examine the relationship between sensory processing, perceived stress, and sleep quality in graduate students. Results showed that students were moderately stressed. Those who had higher scores in over-responsiveness to auditory, visual, and touch perceived significantly higher stress levels and experienced poor sleep quality. OT educators and practitioners can address sensory processing strategies for reducing perceived stress and improving sleep quality to enhance learning.
