Sensory integration (SI) intervention is used with children with a wide range of learning and developmental challenges. Research both supports and questions the constructs of SI and the efficacy of SI intervention. Therefore, the purpose of this article is to facilitate an understanding of SI theory and intervention; delineate strategies that can enhance language, learning, and academic success for students; and provide suggestions for ways to contribute to our knowledge through further research in school settings.
