International Congress / Scientific Meeting
As per the ICEASI constitution, an international congress/scientific meeting is to be held every year on a different continent: the International Sensory Integration
The purpose of this regular congress is
- to promote the formal exchange of the latest research related to SI
- to promote informal exchanges of expertise and knowledge
- to support best practice of ASI® education and practical application
- to create research networks studying sensory integration and ASI®.
We welcome participation of non-members who are interested in Ayres Sensory Integration!
We are excited to announce this year's international SI congress in Rio De Janeiro on Oct. 12-14, hosted by the Brazilian Sensory Integration Association (ABIS) in partnership with the International Council for Education in Ayres Sensory Integration (ICE-ASI). We believe that the theme of this year's ISIC could not be more relevant: INNOVATIONS IN AYRES' SENSORY INTEGRATION.
Find out more about the program, the venue, the registration process, and the submission process for papers/posters here!
The History of ISIC
The first ISIC took place in Cape Town, South Africa in 2018. In 2019, ISIC was hosted in Hong Kong, China, and the latest ISIC happened in California, USA, in 2022.
The next ISIC is taking place at the origins of SI, in Southern California, on July 14-16, 2022 with the title "Sensory Neural Foundations For Social Connection".
Big names in the fields of SI and autism such as Roseann Schaaf, Margret Bauman, Grace Baranek, Anita Bundy, and many more, an intriguing program, and the belated celebration of Dr Ayres 100th birthday will make this congress a once in a lifetime event! Choose between the onsite and the streaming options!
Each day of ISIC 2022 is dedicated to one of the 3 goals of the ASI 2020 Vision:
Thursday (Scholarship: Basic and Applied Science informing and updating ASI Theory) Current research related to sensory integration and praxis
Friday (Children Understood via Comprehensive and Accessible Assessments) Research including reliability and validity of the EASI, SPM, and related measures
Saturday (Translating Research into Practice: Worldwide training and pathways to competency using ASI) Innovations in education, practice, and advocacy
