Certificate in Ayres Sensory Integration (CASI) - Module 6 Information
EVIDENCE-BASED ASI INTERVENTION HANDS-ON PRACTICE AND REVIEW
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.
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.
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
Determine 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.
