"The book is intended for teachers, parents and sensory integration therapists. In an accessible, professional way, the author explains what the disturbances of sensory integration involve, what they relate to and how they manifest themselves. In the book we find a description of not only sensory integration methods, a description of sensory integration dysfunctions in selected disease entities, but also selected methods supporting the child's development, because their knowledge is essential not only for good cooperation between therapists, but also for programming therapy and optimizing support activities child development. It also presents research conducted among parents of children with learning difficulties and behavior, in whom sensory integration disorders occur." - Professor Beata Pituła, Silesian University of Technology, Gliwice

"The book is a compendium of theoretical, empirical and methodological knowledge in the field of supporting the development of a child with impaired sensory integration. The work has been divided into four perfectly complementary parts, in which the author clearly, legibly and transparently discusses the basic issues that fit into the issue of special educational needs of a child with SI disorders. The first part contains analyses and reflections on the child's development up to the age of ten. The author refers here, among others, to the social-emotional, physical-motoric and cognitive functioning of the child. It also analyzes the educational environment, which has an unprecedented impact on the child's development. Part two of the monograph is devoted to a detailed analysis of sensory integration. The author discusses in it the causes of disorders, their characteristics and classification, as well as SI diagnosis and therapy. A very rich list of descriptions of methods supporting the development of a child, including a child with various types of disorders appears to be an excellent supplement here. Part four is a description of the results of the tests. The author selected a quantitative-qualitative research approach, with evident lead given to the quantitative one. The qualitative approach (three individual cases) complements the surveys. The entire work is closed with a chapter containing the author's own conclusions and self-reflection. This book is an excellent material in the field of supporting the development of a child with special educational needs, which will not only fill the gap on the publishing market, but will certainly help teachers working with children with sensory integration disorders. The book could also be used by students of pedagogical studies, serving them as a methodical guide in future professional work." - Professor Małgorzata Przybysz-Zaremba, Cardinal Stefan Wyszyński University in Warsaw
