Captured in correspondence written by sensory integration pioneer A Jean Ayres to her nephew Philip Erwin, this book provides hope, insight, and inspiration to parents of children who have been diagnosed with dysfunction of sensory integration. Interspersed with her letters, written in the 1970s, are Erwin's poignant and sometimes gut-wrenching stories about what it felt like before, during, and after his aunt diagnosed his condition and renowned sensory integration therapist and researcher Zoe Mailloux's insights for parents from a therapist's perspective. The result is a book that gently unfolds for parents what sensory integration is and how parents of children with sensory processing differences should be filled with hope that help is on the way. It is also a heartfelt insight into the life of A Jean Ayres and her deep love for her nephew.
