This module will provide therapists and other related professionals with the underpinning neuroscience as well as sensory integration theory and evidence base, as relevant to applying sensory processing and integration principles to their practice. It will introduce students to the sensory integration patterns of difficulty identified through research and will support students to develop hypotheses about these patterns, informed by neuroscience. This module is designed to equip participants with the knowledge required to apply current SI theories to their everyday practice and begin to recognise the behaviours seen in sensory processing and integration difficulties.
Occupational Therapists, Speech & Language Therapists and Physiotherapists. Professionals from other backgrounds can apply for SI Module 1 only. All applicants must have gained an Honours or non-Honours degree from a University.
