Join us for an interview with Dr. Ayres, including exclusive footage of this legendary scientist and clinician administering treatment! This video presents a tribute to a groundbreaking therapist and researcher who first identified SPD, and an important discussion of how her theory and practice apply today -- to our current, continually evolving understanding of Sensory Processing Disorder.
This historic and current perspective on SPD is perfect for OTs, developmental psychologists, and other professionals. Some parents also may enjoy learning about the origins of today’s occupational therapy treatment practices.
