Sensory Integration Therapy
The treatment concepts related to sensory integration come from a body of work developed by
A. Jean Ayres, PhD, OTR in the 1950s and 1960s. As an occupational therapist, Dr. Ayres was
interested in the way in which sensory processing and motor planning disorders interfere
with daily life function and learning. This theory has been developed and refined by the
research of Dr. Ayres, as well as other occupational and physical therapists. In addition,
literature from the fields of neuropsychology, neurology, physiology, child development,
and psychology has contributed to theory development and intervention strategies.
At Memorial Hospital's Outpatient Therapy Clinic, an occupational therapist who has had
numerous hours of training in the theory and assessment of sensory integration disorders,
will perform the evaluation.
