Welcome to ISIC 2018

 

UPDATE ON WATER CRISIS IN CAPE TOWN

Dear Colleagues

 

As you are aware, the Western Cape is experiencing

severe water restrictions and the possibility of Day Zero

is a reality.

 

Addressing our concerns, Lagoon Beach assured us that

they have contingency plans in place and is working

towards becoming self-sufficient in their water supply

should Day Zero arrive.

We will keep you informed of any new developments.

 

ISIC2018 Organizing committee

"An International Journey of Research, Practice, Advocacy and Education in ASI®"

 

 

The congress programme will be centered around the critical elements of the article State of the science: A roadmap for research in sensory integration authored by Schaaf, Schoen, May-Benson, Parham, Lane, Smith Roley, and Mailloux (2015) as it provides for research, practice, advocacy and education in ASI.

 

The theme of the congress is

"An International Journey of Research, Practice, Advocacy and Education in ASI®".

 

Our key note speakers will be Zoe Mailloux, Susanne Smith Roley, Diane Parham and Roseann Schaaf.

 

We have also invited speakers from countries involved in the establishment of the International Council for Education in Ayres Sensory Integration (ICEASI) and hope to provide congress attendees with a true international "flavor" of sensory integration who will contribute to knowledge and skill building within the field of ASI.
