Objective: All individuals need to have the ability of appropriate sensory processing for proper functioning in the environment and participation in activities of daily living. Also, behavioral functions can be affected by sensory processing problems. This study aimed to determine the relationship between behavioral problems and sensory processing in 7 to 10 year old children with ADHD. Method: This was a descriptive (cross-sectional) study. The study population was 60 7 to 10 year old children with ADHD, referred to a comprehensive psychiatric center. Short Sensory Profile (SSP) and Child Behavior Checklist (CBCL) questionnaires were respectively used for assessing patterns of sensory processing and behavioral problems.
 Results: There was a negative correlation between internalizing behavioural problems (r=-0.426) and externalizing behavioural problems (r=-0.465), and the total score of sensory processing in ADHD children (p<0.05).
 Conclusion: Findings showed that some of behaviors in children with ADHD could be due to some defects in their sensory processing.
