SI Practitioner Training - The SI Modular Pathway Explained
The Modular Pathway course takes its roots from the original concept of Sensory Integration that was developed by Dr Jean Ayres, an Occupational Therapist in the US in the late 1960s, and is now recognised worldwide as a treatment for many aspects of sensory and motor functioning. First introduced and run in partnership with Liverpool University, then from 2007 with Cardiff University until 2011, when the pathway moved to Ulster University which is world-renowned for its academic research and development.
The SI Network and Ulster University programme surpasses the requirements of certification by the original and widely recognised SI courses run by the University of Southern California and Western Psychological Services.
Ulster University has a reputation for excellence in applied and professional education, with an emphasis on work-based learning and placement opportunities for students. It has students from more than 50 countries, e.g., Middle East, China, Hong Kong, and India.
The School of Health Sciences is one of the oldest allied health professional academic schools in the United Kingdom. It offers first honours degrees in occupational therapy and physiotherapy in the UK. Its health and rehabilitation research is world class, as judged by the UK’s Research Assessment Exercises.
