Requesting ASI in an EHCP

If you are writing an EHCP contains recommendations for Ayres’ SI assessment or therapy, please refer to ICEASI Level 2, ensuring any OT/PT or SLT who will be assessing for SI difficulties or providing the ASI intervention is able to be matched to this level of theoretical knowledge, practical skills.

Ref: ©ICEASI 2017 in Mori et al 2017, AOTA OTP Volume 22 Issue 12 p 8 – 13.

The therapist may have trained anywhere in the world, so matching to this first and current version will ensure the focus is on the therapist having the necessary knowledge and skills rather than training by any one or two organisations – the requirement is to practice within ones level of skill and training – extended scope of practice.

(The reason this was needed was so that country to country transferable standards could exist as not everyone trains through one UK or Ireland organisation and now a range of very variable offers exist for online and other courses across the world).
