This intensive course is now offered in English, by published Occupational Therapist and researcher Valeria Isaac. Valeria’s presentations at the European Sensory Integration Congress have always been thought provoking, providing knowledge to inform clinical practice.
Suitable for those seeking post-certification education in Ayres SI, this course focuses specifically on the auditory system, addressing modulation and perception processing in-depth. This workshop has a strong focus on neurobiology and updated scientific evidence impacting behaviour and learning relating to auditory processing.
This course doesn’t address particular clinical assessment techniques or specific treatment methods but rather aims to develop discussion and clinical reasoning using scientific evidence to address auditory difficulties in clinical practices.
This course consists of two modules, which include the following topics:
Module 1: May, Saturday 15 and Sunday 16
· Introduction to the auditory system from a sensory integration perspective
· Historical evidence and evolutionary development of the auditory system
· Neuroanatomical review of auditory organs and neuronal circuits
· Afferent and efferent neurophysiology
· Central brain structures for auditory perception and integration
Module 2: May, Saturday 22, and Sunday 23
· The auditory system in childhood development
· How auditory processing influences learning and behaviour
· Auditory modulation and perception in sensory integration
· Audition and cognition
· Current research findings regarding auditory processes in sensory integration
