My Journey into Sensory Integration

My journey into SI started in 2008. I was working with adult (PMLD with Autism) and I recall thinking,“this is the key that will unlock my clients potential”, since then SI has transformed my practice and deepened my clinical reasoning.

I worked for the NHS for over 15 years, mostly in paediatrics (specialising in Autism Spectrum Disorders, Dyspraxia and Sensory processing difficulties, where I delivered SI on a daily basis) and in 2015 to work independently. I am an Advanced Practitioner in Sensory Integration and have mentored SI 4 students for many years. I am passionate about occupational therapy and sensory integration and am thrilled to have been selected to provide Online Mentor-ship to the Sensory Integration level 1 students as they begin their exciting journey into SI.

How I use SI in my practice

I use the principles of Ayres Sensory Integration Therapy daily in assessment, intervention and treatment planning. I offer therapy to children in schools where I have access to a Sensory Integration Clinic and also provide an adapted version within their homes and schools. More recently I have also started to apply the principles of Ayres Sensory Integration Therapy to my Adolescent and Adult clients within their homes and community.

Why I am committed to supporting others to study SI

Since embarking on my own Sensory Integration learning pathway, my clinical practice has transformed, deepened and my clinical reasoning skills acutely honed. I am passionate about the contribution SI has made to not only my practice but our profession as a whole and am fully committed to support others as they embark on the same journey that has transformed my practice all those years ago.
