 Abstract
This research investigated the sensory processing ability and selected subjects who had sensory processing problems, and divided the subjects into an experimental group and control group. The experimental group was educated with sensory processing intervention on the activities of daily living to determine its influence on the quality of life. The study was based on 230 university students with similar majors in 3 universities of Chungcheong area in the beginning of May, 2013. From here, 32 subjects who had issues with their sensory processing ability were selected. The 230 students were given a survey on the quality of life, individual characteristics, and sensory processing ability. Later, the 32 subjects who had problems with their sensory processing ability were divided into an experimental group and control group. The control group performed sensory processing intervention, whereas the control group did not. After the sensory processing intervention method for 6 weeks, the quality of life was re-evaluated. As a result, the total score of the quality of life after intervention was 98.69 in the experimental group and 84.81 in the control group (p=0.001). The physical score was 16.43 in the experimental group and 14.64 in the control group (p=0.008). The psychological score was 14.71 in the experimental group and 11.75 in the control group (p<0.001). The social score was 14.67 in the experimental group and 13.17 in the control group (p=0.032). The environment score was 14.66 in the experimental group and 12.34 in the control group (p=0.006). The experimental group showed a significant increase in all areas of the quality of life, whereas the control group did not. Through this result, it can be seen that a sensory processing intervention method in daily life can increase the quality of life for subjects with problems in sensory processing ability. Overall, it will be necessary to apply a treatment of various sensory intervention programs for adults and promote a better quality of life.
