Module 6 provides the opportunity for therapists to observe experts in ASI intervention strategies work with children in a clinic which meets the criteria outlined in the Fidelity Measure. Participants bring a completed case to the course for analysis in small group and whole group discussions including interpretation of assessment findings, identified outcomes, and intervention strategies, design, and refinement of the fidelity to the ASI intervention principles. Module price includes dedicated tutoring in a peer group in our online virtual classroom space, where you will discuss and deepen your learning with your peers.Expert therapists from across the globe will be sharing intervention case studies on M6. Dr Susanne Smith Roley will be sharing the latest research and evidence, building on your learning about Fidelity in M5. For therapists working with teens, adults and older adults, we will be exploring the application of ASI with adult clinical populations including how to adapt assessment methods, assessment tools specific to adult clinical populations, the importance of praxis to recovery and engagement in the therapy process. Break out spaces and post-module tutoring will allow those working in secure and acute high-risk clinical settings to explore and consider how to provide intervention in these restricted environments.
WHO CAN TAKE THIS COURSE? Module 6 is open to occupational therapists (OT), physical therapists (PT), and speech and language pathologists (SLP). Modules 1-5 are prerequisite to M6.
*Due to the Pandemic, CLASI is temporarily offering traditionally onsite modules in a synchronous virtual format. Please check with host site to confirm module format.

After the course, participants will be able to:
Apply clinical reasoning in the design and implementation of intervention for individuals with sensory integration difficulties or dysfunction
Link the hypothesis from assessment with therapeutic proximal goals toward meeting proximal, participation-related outcomes
Use dynamic assessment while working with clients to refine the intervention during treatment
Name the process elements of the ASI Intervention Fidelity Measure
Describe the ways in which the process elements interact during a direct intervention session
Explain the relationship between the activities and the facilitation of adaptive responses
Explain the importance of the client’s motivation and active involvement during the intervention
Discuss the benefits and limitations of ASI intervention with a wide variety of diagnostic groups, ages, and types of difficulties
Demonstrate the way in which sensory strategies are implemented in various contexts, including the home, school, and community.
