Jean Ayres Therapiekonzept für die Behandlung von Kindern mit den unterschiedlichsten Entwicklungsstörungen wird seit Jahrzehnten mit Erfolg eingesetzt. Das 1984 erstmals in deutscher Sprache herausgegebene Buch kann inzwischen als Standardwerk bezeichnet werden und hat bis heute nichts von seiner Aktualität verloren. Der Erfolg des Buches liegt in dem schlüssigen Therapiekonzept und in der allgemeinverständlichen, von unnötigem Fachvokabular freien Sprache, die Eltern und Therapeuten gleichermaßen erreicht. Die Psychologin und Beschäftigungstherapeutin erklärt wissenschaftlich fundiert die Grundlagen der sogenannten "sensorischen Integration": Dieses Ordnen und Verarbeiten von Sinneseindrücken ist ein entscheidender Faktor für kindliche Entwicklung, und eine Vielfalt von Symptomen kann auf Störungen der sensorischen Integration zurückgeführt werden. Die Therapie setzt demzufolge auch hier an und kann fast spielerisch durchgeführt werden. Das Buch ist für alle Berufsgruppen von Bedeutung, die lernbehinderte, verhaltensgestörte oder hirngeschädigte Kinder pädagogisch und therapeutisch betreuen. Es richtet sich aber ebenso auch an Eltern und Familienangehörige.
