ISIC 2020

International Sensory Integration Congress 2020

In 2014, a group of international colleagues set forth the Ayres Sensory Integration 2020 Vision — a commemoration of the 100th birthday of Dr. A. Jean Ayres. The vision included three goals for completion by 2020:

Ayres Sensory Integration will have a strong, international presence with demonstrated scholarship; means for valid, comprehensive assessment; and pathways for training to ensure the ongoing development, standards of excellence and effective implementation of this important work.

 The International Sensory Integration Congress (ISIC2020) will showcase the ways in which this vision has been realized, with presentations from eminent researchers and speakers from around the globe. In addition, we will commemorate Dr. Ayres and her lifework during an all-day celebration on the day that would have been her 100th birthday: July 18, 2020.  

We hope to see you in beautiful sunny California, 
July 15-18, 2020 
for a once-in-lifetime experience!
