"The enthusiasm of the tutor really helped and I really enjoyed the training. The feedback I received from staff that have recently completed their SI Module 1 was that it had helped them to complete their understanding and knowledge of the practical application."
"It is very clear that Kath
and her team were extremely
passionate and very experienced" See a review of this course
The wrong sensory input or problems with integration disrupts function. Conversely, creating the right sensory environments and supporting people to get their sensory needs met appropriately means that they are able to think, learn, remember and communicate more easily.
Setting the Scene:
Day 2Why SI and how do we know it can make a difference?
We will make clear links to occupation, function and participation, in considering how to measure the impact of Ayres' SI interventions within this client population.
Using case study and research we will explore the selection of outcome measures and how to use the results to:
Using case studies and video we will consider environmental affordances across a range of treatment settings – from hospital or home (secure/forensic/community/clinic).
We will present and explore equipment restrictions and opportunities with these settings, and across the ages from adolescents to adults and older adults, considering possibilities to be found in community resources.
You will consider and plan how to action and implement your learning over the last 2 day into clinical practice.
Who should attend?
This course is aimed at therapists working with adolescents, adults and older adults.
Sensory Integration: It’s not just for children
“Because humans are sensory beings and sensation is inherent in all occupations, the sensory integration framework is relevant to occupational therapy practice beyond pediatrics.” Sensory Integration: It’s Not Just for Children - AOTA -SIS Quarterly - December 2006
“Sensations are ‘food’ or nourishment for the nervous system, the brain needs continuous variety of sensory nourishment to develop and then to function.” Ayres 1979
