Als A. Jean Ayres (1972, 1976, 1979, 1989) die Sensorische Integrationstheorie entwickelte, leistete sie Pionierarbeit: Sie war die erste, die sich der Frage widmete, inwieweit subkortikale Strukturen zu einer normalen Entwicklung beitragen, und tatsächlich stieß sie bei einigen Kindern mit Lernstörungen auf mögliche Anzeichen für subkortikale Dysfunktionen. Nach Ansicht der meisten Psychologen (z. B. Rourke u. Strang 1983) und Erziehungswissenschaftler (z. B. Davidson 1983) sind Lernstörungen jedoch vorwiegend auf beeinträchtigte kortikale Prozesse und damit auf eine höhere Ebene zurückzuführen.
