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 SI Module 2 course, accredited by Ulster University, is the second part of the modular pathway which also offers the opportunity to work towards a Postgraduate Certificate, Diploma and Masters in Sensory Integration.
Recent advances in neuroscience support the application of the theory of Sensory Integration (SI) as a treatment approach with children, adolescents, adults and with older adults. This module builds on the theory of SI, the principles of sensory integration assessments and the use of clinical reasoning to apply theory to practice in the context of specific client groups.
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.
