SI Module 2 focuses on giving the student the tools and knowledge to assess using the Ayres’ Sensory Integration framework. Students will explore the patterns of sensory integration dysfunction, sensory integration models and the principles and practice of assessment. Students will develop clinical reasoning skills and the ability to synthesise assessment information as relevant to sensory integration. By the end of the module, students will be able to plan an intervention from synthesising case history and assessment data.

The assessment will be in three parts.
Assessment 1: This will require the student to engage with online literature searching, identification of key papers and an evaluation of their contribution to the field. This will be submitted online halfway through the module, in order to help the student organise their knowledge base as a key component of clinical reasoning in Ayres' Sensory Integration.
Weighting: 20% of the module’s overall mark. It will be submitted by end of Monday in Week 7.
Assessment 2: Students will be given access to all case study material pertaining to this assessment online. This assessment will require the student to identify, interpret, and synthesise accurately video material and raw assessment data, to identify strengths and barriers, generating appropriate clinical hypotheses, and consider plan of action going forward for that person and significant others.
Weighting: 80% of the module’s overall mark. It will be submitted by end of Friday in Week 16.
Assessment 3: Reflection -you will produce a short piece of work reflecting on your learning and how this has impacted on your professional practice. This is Pass/Fail.
Weighting: it has no contributing mark. It will be submitted by end of Friday in Week 16.
Subject to change.
By the end of the SI Module 2 course, students will be able to synthesise, analyse and interpret assessment data and articulate clear reasoning related to their hypothesis of the sensory integration difficulty. The module will concentrate upon the key concepts of ASI, exploring the patterns of SI dysfunction, models of SI, principles and practice of assessment, clinical reasoning, synthesising the assessment data and the process of interpretation of assessment. Students will be supported to develop assessment and interpretation skills drawing on a range of assessment tools. The SIPT (Sensory Integration and Praxis Tests) and the incoming EASI (Evaluation in Ayres’ Sensory Integration) will continue to be utilised as key teaching tools in this module.
