AOTA has really helpful and supportive articles right now – promoting the best clinical practice, with an emphasis on participation in occupation.

This article is particularly pertinent to OT’s using ASI theory and practice to create therapeutic environments supporting and scaffolding participation in daily life for those with trauma.

FAQ: How can I compare ASI Wise CLASI CASI to other programmes?

Once more we are being asked more about our programme and others, as well as accreditation of programmes teaching Ayres’ Sensory Integration.

ICEASI  is the International Council for Education in Ayres Sensory Integration (ICEASI),  providing global standards for education and practice of ASI.

Read more at www.iceasi.org when their page goes live after updates from Hong Kong 2019. In the interim, please email them with any enquiries about the accreditation of programmes teaching Ayres’ SI.

FAQ: Can I do ASI Wise CLASI CASI with a DipCOT qualification?

Today we took a call from an OT asking if they can do the ASI Wise CLASI Certification in Ayres’ Sensory Integration.

Many OT’s with significant skill and expertise practicing ASI started ASI training as qualified OT’s who qualified in the past with a DipCOT as their undergraduate qualification – this is historical and will be the case for many older OT’s. (Apologies to anyone with a DipCOT- this was a traditional route a while ago!)

If you are considering doing our modules, you might want to consider doing M1 in the classroom, especially if you have not been keeping up to date with your research and neuroscience. This module is very hands-on and allows you to immerse yourself in the literature and recent evidence with lots of time to meet with others to share knowledge and experience, in a supported environment with mentoring post module.

Resource: Research Evidence Website

So why have we created this additional space online?

Therapists and teachers tell us they sometimes want access to a place to send others including parents to, where there is evidence about Ayres’ SI but no links to selling courses or other commercial activity.

Sometimes it’s helpful to cross post into groups who restrict any commercial even ‘not for profit’ sites that sell workshops from posting.
