Proud to be the first Syrian Advanced Sensory Integration therapist. This journey deserves all the time and effort I put in it. It was an amazing experience.

I'm so excited to join the growing community of advanced SI practitioners.

Terry Ann Parnis

I am very pleased for being awarded the Advanced SI Practitioner certificate. After completing all modules, I realised that my understanding of sensory integration was raised to a completely new level and it has been by far the best learning experience that I have ever had.

I’m thrilled to be a Speech and Language Therapist and now Advanced SI practitioner.

Advanced Practitioner

Victoria Cureton-Favager

I am passionate about sensory integration and am thankful to the Sensory Integration Education team for the support over the past 5 years. My SI journey is very much beginning, and the SIE course has provided me with the skills, knowledge and confidence to lead on the development of an NHS OT Sensory Service in West Yorkshire.

Advanced Practitioner

Elaine Chaplin

Honoured to have obtained this with great support from Ulster University, Sensory Integration Education and positive mentorship.

Advanced Practitioner

Kimberly Elter

I am grateful for Jean Ayres’ pioneering work that spotlighted the importance of neuroscience. Her efforts and the continued efforts of those that have followed her are responsible for sensory integration now being considered mainstream

Advanced Practitioner

Eleanor McStay-Fearon

Thank you to Cathy and Gina, who were very supportive mentors during the duration of Module 4. We adapted quickly to studying during a global pandemic and working on the core competencies to become Advanced Practitioners in SI. Well done to all the new Advanced Practitioners.

Advanced Practitioner

Colette Nuttall

Like lots of other people, I had only intended to start with the first module! Once I saw what a difference SI could make, I knew I had to push past my fears of studying again and keep learning. It was tough but having the support and encouragement of a brilliant mentor and the lovely friends I made on the course got me through.

Advanced Practitioner

Dawn Parvin

Engaging in SI4 has enabled me to develop my skills and confidence as both an OT and SI practitioner. I have increased my skill set and passion to confidently and effectively engage with children and families and to consider ways of best adapting ASI sessions to fit the unique needs of each child and family.
