REQUIREMENTS AND ASSIGNMENTS
Click here to view requirements and assignments for each CLASI module and the full CLASI Certificate in ASI program.
To receive the final certificate, learners must document the completion of a comprehensive assessment of sensory integration with at least two typically developing children and one child who has been identified as having concerns. Due to the accessibility of the EASI in terms of cost, age range, and international applicability, the main assignments of the program will be geared toward these newly developed tests. A checklist of items needed for learning, practicing, administering, and scoring the EASI will be provided in the resources section of CLASI’s assessment Modules (Modules 2 & 3). The estimated total cost for the EASI items is $200-$300.
Participants in the CLASI CASI who have access to SIPT materials and who wish to test children on the SIPT as part of the case requirements may do so. Therapists will be guided through the interpretation process with the tests they apply and through cases provided in the modules.
