In this chat, we cover the current state of the EASI (Evaluation in Ayres Sensory Integration), recent data on trends in sensorimotor development, the impact of funding models on accessing care and whether or not Susanne likes cheese…

In this episode we are fortunate enough to speak to Dr Smith Roley for a second time.

Dr Smith Roley is an occupational therapist with over 40 years of experience in paediatric practice. She has been at the forefront of Ayres’ Sensory Integration research and clinical practice for many years and along with Dr Zoe Mailloux, is a founding partner of CLASI (Collaborative for Leadership in Sensory Integration) and first-generation student of Dr Jean Ayres. With CLASI, she is providing a sensory integration certificate education program, offered in many countries around the world.

In this chat, we cover the current state of the EASI (Evaluation in Ayres Sensory Integration), recent data on trends in  sensorimotor development, the impact of funding models on accessing care and whether or not Susanne likes cheese…

Throughout this chat, and in Susanne’s last chat, she makes reference to aspects of SI research and the role of her organisation, CLASI. Links to some of these areas can be found here.
