How to do a Factor Mixture Model (R or Python)

#1
Hello

The purpose of my study aims to stratify sensory phenotypes in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). I would like to identify subgroups based on sensory symptoms to understand the heterogeneity of sensory features.

To measure sensory symptoms, I use a 38 items parent-report questionnaire
Each item is rated on a 1-5 Likert scale. The closer you are to 1, the greater the severity.

I would like to use a Factor Mixture Model. My question is: there is someone who knows how to do a Factor Mixture Model using R or Python. I only find a script on Mplus but I haven't a Mplus Licence

Find below the article explaining what a factor mixture model is and in which I found a Mplus script :

It seems like you should be able to run it using the OpenMX R package:
