We are answering more and more questions online, via text and What’s App – all asking the same questions about our Certification in Ayres’ SI, and why our experienced Directors and Lecturers have chosen to be affiliated with the CL-ASI Programme.
ASI Wise is part of ICEASI, so we use these standards to guide our programme and provide advice about knowledge and skills required for practice.Consultant OT, Director and CLASI Lecturer Kath Smith, pictured above, represents ASI Wise at ICEASI meetings.
Sensory integration…the ability to organize sensory information for use…perception and synthesis of sensory data that enables man to interact effectively with the environment.’
Jean. A. Ayres (1972)
Ayres’ Sensory Integration combines theories and concepts from human development, current neuroscience, psychology with occupational science into a holistic framework through which we can consider a person’s development, learning and behaviour.
Integrating sensory input is essential for development, it underpins learning and ensures we can participate in daily life, helping us to ;
make sense of and join together cues in the environment
‘do the right thing at the right time and in the ‘just right’ way’ – moving and using our bodies to get things done
be aware of what goes on within our own bodies;
know who we are – where we stop and start and where others begin
manage emotions and self -regulate
interact with others and the world around us – and safely
Here is a great resource to share with therapists, teachers, and families new to Ayres’ Sensory Integration to help explain Ayres’ SI in more detail.
