The course is open to Occupational Therapists, Speech & Language Therapists and Physiotherapists. Psychologists registered with HCPC or medical doctors who have GMC registration (or the equivalent) can apply for SI Module 1 only.
The aim of this module is to enable you to understand the current neuroscience, and the relevant and emergent theories, concepts, and practices, related to Ayres’ Sensory Integration. You will be able to relate sensory processing to the underlying neurology and evidence base of sensory integration.
Length: 16 weeks
Hours: Online Content and contact with Mentors - 55hrs, Independent study (including assessment) 245 hrs, Total effort: 300 hrs.
The SI Module 1 Online has been designed as a series of learning units which address the module learning outcomes. Learning will be facilitated via a range of learning methods including animated presentations, interactive learning scenarios, videos and case study vignettes.
The learning units include the neuroscience supporting the theory of sensory integration and an overview of all sensory systems. You will enhance your clinical reasoning skills and be able to draw on knowledge of sensory systems and sensory integration theory and research to support your clinical observations and interventions.
In addition, you will have your own E-Mentor who will support your individual learning needs with online groups offering peer learning support.
