Reviewer: Allison Martin

Sensory Integration and the Child by Jean Ayres was the first book written for parents and teachers about sensory integrative dysfunction and its treatment. Indeed for many years, this was the only book available for parents about sensory dysfunction and it was not that easy to acquire. (Parents either borrowed this book from their child's therapist or friends or ordered it at great cost directly from the publisher.) It remains a wonderful resource for anyone seeking to learn more about sensory integration theory and practice. Like many therapies in the early stages, the first book by Ayres claims a lot; however parents reading it can search out the parts that fit their child and experiences.

Reissued and updated in 2005, this edition includes a new foreword (by Dr. Florence Clark) plus input from other sensory integration experts. The new edition also provides tips, checklists, Q and A's, and resources, making it easier to use and more relavant to today's parent.

Sensory Integration and the Child is very descriptive of the underlying theory and the practial application of sensory integration treatment. If you want to learn about sensory integration from the founder of the movement - this is the book to get.
