 Twenty-two children with mild developmental disorders received therapeutic intervention based upon the theory of sensory integration. Influence of different instructional settings—individual or group treatment—upon its treatment efficacy was studied. The children were randomly assigned to either of the individual or the group intervention, and the Japanese Version of the Miller Assessment for Preschoolers (JMAP) was administered to all children befor and after the intervention. The obtained JMAP scores showed significant developmental changes in the Foundation Index (p<0.05) for both groups, and in Coordination, Non-Verbal, and Complex Indices (p<0.01) for the individual treatment group. Furthermore, a larger degree of JMAP score-change was observed for the individual treatment group compared to the group treatment, with significant difference in Complex Index (p<0.01) and in Coordination and Non-Verbal Indices (p<0.05).
