Online SI Module 4: Advanced Practice (follow on from SI Module 3)


This module is for students who are taking the SI Module 3 online course route.

If you have previously passed the classroom SI Module 3 course, then you can see your SI Module 4 course here.


The SI Module 4 course, accredited by Ulster University, is the fourth part of the modular pathway which also offers the opportunity to work towards a Postgraduate Diploma or Masters in Sensory Integration. 20 credits


Learning needs will be established at the outset by setting a learning contract and objectives and discussing the use of mentoring. Learning is facilitated via a range of methods including animated presentations, interactive learning scenarios, videos and case study vignettes. The course will cover the principles of treatment, clinical reasoning, outcome measures, and current evidence base. Guidance on how to critique research and the way this is reported in journal articles will be given, with an opportunity for online group discussion. Different learning opportunities will be offered e.g. observing a video from a master clinician, as well as opportunities to discuss students’ own treatment case studies. Reflective practice and how to maximise benefit from the mentoring process will be covered.

The development of life-long learners is an important aspect of the rationale for the module and a student-centred approach is employed whereby students are encouraged to determine their own learning needs and therefore direct module content in order to achieve the learning outcomes. Self directed study forms an important part of the learning strategies. Students will have their own E-Mentor who will support their individual learning needs with online groups offering peer learning support.

This online SI Module 4 course is designed to enable students to develop in-depth knowledge and experience in SI and therapy in order to support critical analysis and evidence of interventions.
