Please note: Being listed here is not per se an endorsement of any particular site or email list. I have included annotations for those sites or lists that I am familiar with and strongly recommend.


The publisher of the SIPT (Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests) runs a program in connection with USC that certifies therapists. They have an international listing of all such therapists that is free and easy to use at: 

http://www.sensoryint.com/therap.html is another database with a search engine to find therapists who are certified by Sensory Integration International to administer and interpret the Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests (SIPT).  Unfortunately, it now costs $5 to do a search.

Overwhelmed by all the terminology and abbreviations? In addition to the acronyms page at this site, there's an excellent Dictionary for Parents of Children with Disabilities (in PDF format, you need Adobe Acrobat to read it) at http://www.usd.edu/cd/dictionary/.  It is also available as a website (but may take a long time to load) at http://www.usd.edu/cd/dictionary/dictionary.htm
There's a shorter "Glossary and Guide to Acronyms" (also in PDF) by Leslie Packer, Ph.D., at http://www.tourettesyndrome.net/Files/Conditions/Glossary2002.pdf
Another dictionary can be found at http://www.feat.org/legal/speddict.htm and another list of acronyms at http://www.feat.org/legal/terms.html
