Reviewer: Allison Martin

Jean Ayres is the well known pioneer of the concept and study of sensory integration. Although her life-changing work was often dismissed by the medical establishment, she produced 50 research papers and book chapters on sensory integration, bringing this concept into the lives of many hurting families.

Love, Jean: Inspiration for Families Living with Dysfunction of Sensory Integration is based on a collection of letters from Jean Ayres to her nephew, Philip Erwin, advising him on ways to cope with and help his sensory integration problems. Each of her letters is accompanied by a discussion from Philip on his struggles with sensory integration and learning disabilities referred to in the letters. The letters are also framed by advice for parents by an occupational therapist, a former research assistant to Dr. Ayres. Thus the book provides three ways to look at sensory integration: through the eyes of the first researcher, an occupational therapist and a person with sensory integration issues.

This approach is unique in presenting formally unpublished letters from Jean Ayres, but also in documenting the struggles of a student with sensory integration disorder over the course of his life. Love, Jean: Inspiration for Families Living with Dysfunction of Sensory Integration would be of great interest to anyone wanting to learn more about this remarkable family and the application of the original sensory integration concepts and techniques.
