This groundbreaking text presents a wealth of valuable information to help occupational therapists understand both the theory and therapeutic applications of sensory integration. It shows how sensory integration and play can be combined to create a powerful therapeutic tool. Various kinds of dysfunction—vestibular–proprioceptive processing deficits, tactile processing and sensory defensiveness, somatodyspraxia, and hemispheric specialization—are presented. Case examples effectively distinguish one disorder from another.
The book describes the content, standardization, and validity of the Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT) (WPS Product No. W-260). A detailed case example illustrates the process of interpreting SIPT scores in relation to clinical and historical data.
