Our wider team supports our social media media sites, peer learning spaces and research projects includes therapists, expert parents, carers, young people and adults with a lived experience of sensory integration difficulties.
Their passion for their roles was clear during the early hours and days of COVID-19.
This dedicated and committed team dug deep to find the time and extraordinary energy, creating social media spaces to support anyone struggling with sensory integration challenges, manage the chaos and confusion of lockdown
The ASI Wise Team were perfectly placed to be responsive to therapists needs during COVID-19. We offered one of the first webinars about the use of technology in practice; guiding and supporting therapists to translate and innovate – shaping best practice and use of technology in the Spring. Our tutor team is drawn from practising therapists who are working towards the ICEASI instructor standards.
