With many decades of experience in continuing education in ASI, the leaders at CLASI have developed the Certificate in Ayres Sensory Integration (CASI) with an emphasis on optimal learning methods for the various types of content. The result is a six module hybrid program which provides the convenience of self-paced, online learning with onsite learning for hands-on concepts that are enhanced through mentored experiences and feedback. 

Upon completion of the program, learners will critique, analyze, and use advanced theoretical-practical tools of assessment and intervention for best practice using ASI Theory and Practice. 

 
 

CLASI CASI Modules 1, 2, 4, and 5 are offered through online training, and Modules 3 and 6 are offered live at a site of your choice. Each module will provide 30 hours of training, including the assignments, for a total of 180 hours for the program. CLASI is an approved provider of continuing education units (CEU) by the American Occupational Therapy Association. Enroll Now.
