Renowned scholars and practitioners in this field explore the theory, assessment, intervention, and research related to sensory integrative dysfunction.

"Compared to other SI books, this is the most thorough description I have read. I highly recommend this book as a complete guide to Sensory Integration theory, assessment, and treatment to those clinicians currently involved in SI, or those who are just beginning to explore this very exciting aspect of occupational therapy." -- Beverly Franchuk, Volume 70, Number 1, Canadian Journal of Occupational Therapy, February 2003

"...reorganized and rewritten to make the content easier to understand and to include the most recent work by A. Jean Ayres, illustrations, an integration of theory & application of interventional concepts, key terms, and more."
