Course Description

In the last 5 years, Ayres Sensory Integration ® Intervention (ASI) has achieved the status of an evidenced-based intervention using external standards such as those set by the Council for Exceptional Children (CEC, 2014; Cook, et al., 2015). This achievement was possible through analysis of studies using the ASI Fidelity Measure that provides a reliable and valid tool to ensure that the intervention provided during the study is faithful to Sensory Integration theory and methods. The ASI Fidelity Measure summarizes the essential structural and process elements of therapeutic practice using sensory integration theory and methods.  During this workshop, participants will learn the essential elements of ASI as delineated in the Fidelity Measure, differentiate sensory integration versus sensory-based approaches, and support clinical reasoning using the ASI Fidelity Measure to improve research and evidence-based practice.

Who Should Attend

Professionals interested in research and evidence-based practice using sensory integration theory and methods.

Learning Objectives

Upon completion of this workshop, the participant will be able to:

  • Discuss ways in which the Fidelity Measure contributes to research and evidence-based practice
  • List four main structural elements essential in the provision of therapy using ASI
  • Describe the 10 process elements essential to the delivery of ASI
  • Identify interventions that meet the criteria for ASI and those that do not
  • Distinguish the strength of studies supporting ASI and sensory-based approaches
