This year we are pleased to announce that we have funded 2 of our members to travel to the 2017 European Sensory Integration Congress (ESIC) to present their research findings and hear from other world-leading SI practitioners.
Now in its 5th year, ESIC is widely regarded as one of the leading global Sensory Integration events.
Having gone through a rigorous selection process, the 2 recipients of the grant are Sue Delport and Aine Henry.
Sue Delport, Lecturer & Clinic Lead in Occupational Therapy at Cardiff University, is also a Fellow of the SI Network and was previously an SI Network director and lecturer.
Sue will be presenting her paper, “Planning a national study application that meets quality indicators for evidence based interventions.”
Aine Henry, from Dublin, is a senior Occupational Therapist (OT) and Advanced Practitioner who splits her working life between two roles. Firstly working with children who have intellectual disabilities and autism and secondly, working in a clinic which provides Ayres Sensory Integration.
Aine will be presenting her paper entitled, “Teaching children with sensory processing difficulties: exploring the experiences of recently qualified primary school teachers in Ireland.”
Aine and Sue will be travelling to Vienna for the Congress which is taking place from 1 – 3 June 2017.
Aine commented, "I am really looking forward to attending this ESIC Conference, the line-up of speakers is inspiring and I look forward to hearing, and sharing, ideas at the forefront of SI theory and practice".
We look forward to hearing how Sue and Aine get on at the Congress and will keep you posted on any updates they would like to share with the SI Network.
