This model simplifies the complex information on praxis and aims to guide clinical reasoning of practitioners who adapt sensory integrative approach. It lists three levels of theoretical considerations and specifies the neural processes, systems, and outcome functions associated. The three levels and the components are: foundation components (sensory modulation skills, sensory discrimination skills, sequencing/rhythmicity), praxis components (ideation, motor planning, execution/motor coordination, feedback) and end product components (problem solving, sequencing/organization). Intervention considerations are also presented for each of the component, with the types of adaptive responses expected and the recommended types of intervention approaches for each component. This model adapts a sensory integration frame of reference, involving understanding of the theoretical foundations of praxis, underlying sensory systems supporting each component of praxis, and available intervention approaches and their expected outcomes.

It emphasizes that the fundament of intervention for praxis is the ability to elicit adaptive responses to environmental demands.
