The total questionnaire result collected and analyzed are 232 responses. Results : In terms of ratio of therapist who are administrating sensory integration, occupational therapist takes biggest percentage. In most case, it is equipped enough to do treatment in terms of space and tools. Generally, therapists are performing evaluation and documentation earnestly, and willingly participating to continued education and clinical training coursework. However, it is found that some cases are implementing treatment without through evaluation and/or without professional training. Conclusion : This study propose that sensory integration therapists need to train their clinical knowledge and skills through professional training education based on the Ayres Sensory Integration (ASI) theory.
