Welcome to M1 | SI1 Live and Interactive
We can’t wait to get to know you all more on Zoom and as we discover more about the mysteries of the brain and explore the theory of Ayres’ Sensory Integration, from Ayres’ early ideas to the research and evidence she explored and used to understand the sensory systems. Jump in and explore the space, it’s worth a look round before the module starts.

The ASI Wise Team
The latest advancements in neuroscience support the application of the theory of sensory integration as an approach to dealing with children, adolescents, adults, and older adults. This module will provide the therapists with a theoretical basis for the application of the theory of sensory integration for clinical practice.
The focus of the first module will be on the theory of sensory integration, the central nervous system, the neuroscience of sensory systems, modulation, praxis, and the principles of evaluation and intervention in sensory integration. This online module provides in-depth lectures accompanied by supplemental videos and assignments to enhance your experience.
We strongly advise that prior to starting that you familiarize yourself with the seminal texts such as Ayres (2005) Sensory Integration and the Child, available through www.wpspublish.org. Click here to view the required and suggested readings.
WHO CAN TAKE THIS COURSE
Module 1 is open to all who wish to learn about ASI theory.
After the course, participants will be able to:
- Define scientific theory, model and frame of reference
- Recognize core principles and concepts of Ayres Sensory Integration® Theory
- Describe the common patterns of sensory integration dysfunction and their proposed neural correlations
- Describe the neurological structures and their functions involved in the process of sensory integration
- Describe the relationship between sensory integration and participation in everyday activities and occupations
- Describe the functional implications and occupational factors in relation to changes of sensory impairments;
- Discuss the praxis and its role in performance and behaviour.
