Understanding physiologic function

I am a music therapist specializing in work with Autistic and other diagnosed children. I have just completed a book titled:Music Therapy, Sensory Integration and The Autistic Child, currently in publication at Jessica Kingsley Publishers. It is filled with physiologic information as that relates to the work of music therapy. I have used the Fisher book as a reference and found it accurate, concise, and well presented, and it is one of the physiologic references in my own bibliography. Any therapist working with sensory integration issues must investigate the physiologic implications in coordinated hearing, seeing, sensing. For that information, I found this book clear and direct in helping lay readers and professionals alike to understand physiology. My own book follows similar progressions from presenting physiologic information to demonstrating, through case examples, how sensory integration implicates the work of music therapy. I recommend this book for clinicians, educators, caregivers. My own book will be available in late 2001.

Sensory Integration: Theory and Practice

This was one of the few books available at the time my son was diagonosed with SI. The book was invaluable to me at the time. Understand the book is a theory and practice text, and is not written with the layman in mind. However, I did gain more insight into SI with the book. It helped me understand a lot of the reasons behind my son's behaviors. It also helped me better understand the need for the therapy he was receiving, and why things affected him the way they did. I would recommend this book to other parents who are as perplexed as I was. It helps with a few more pieces of the puzzle.

Sensory Integration:Theory and Practice

Even with forty years of experience in the field, I found this book insightful. It is written to enlarge existing understanding of sensory integration without intimidating the reader. The wealth of knowledge can help not only the new graduate, but also the more experienced practitioner.
