Accredited, High-Quality Sensory Integration Courses

ESIC 2019 bursary winners announced

29 Apr 2019 15:00 | SIE Support (Administrator)

We’re delighted to award bursaries of £500 to three of our Advanced SI Practitioner members who have each had their abstracts accepted for European Sensory Integration Congress 2019, which is being held in Thessaloniki this June. We hope the bursaries will assist in covering the travel and accommodation costs of presenting at this prestigious event.

Our successful bursary recipients are:


Rebecca Matson

Occupational Therapist, Advanced Sensory Integration Practitioner

Delfryn, Cygnet Healthcare, Wales, UK

“My abstract is based around the case study I completed for my SI Module 4. It focuses on a patient with borderline personality disorder and a significant history of trauma during childhood, looking at how some of the presenting difficulties were potentially due to changes in sensory processing resulting from this and how engagement in ASI sessions helped begin to change this and support overall regulation and engagement.”

Angeliki Drougka

Occupational Therapist, Advanced Sensory Integration Practitioner

Exelixi Therapy Center Argos, Greece

“The title of my oral presentation is ‘Let’s talk about what living with anxiety is like. Linking Sensory Processing and Anxiety in clinical and healthy populations: findings from a recent Systematic Literature Review.’

“The focus of the presentation will be on the demonstration of findings from a Systematic Review of primary evidence, completed in partial fulfillment of the requirements for my MSc in SI.

“The aim of the Systematic Review was to explore all the possible associations between sensory processing disorders and anxiety/anxiety disorders. Methodology, implications for practice and future research and main limitations will be illustrated. I will also share real-life stories of patients and family members dealing with sensory problems and anxiety and discuss my personal approach to managing the impact of these conditions, at home, in the clinic and across health services.”


Alison Double

Senior Lecturer, Occupational Therapist, Advanced Sensory Integration Practitioner

University of Worcester

 “My abstract considers ‘How can football stadiums be more autism friendly?’”
