As the national SI organization, GSIÖ has represented Austria in international panels concerned with SI training (e.g., ICEASI, USC/WPS Instructor Meetings) since the 1990s and developed the standards for SI training in Austria. These include:
The programs developed by GSIÖ are implemented by cooperating course providers who are obligated to keep the standards set forth by GSIÖ. The course provider schedules courses, calculates course fees, advertises and organizes
the courses. Find upcoming courses and the opportunity to sign up directly on the cooperating course provider's website!
Since 1996, a few hundred therapists from Austria and the neighboring countries have completed their basic SI training according to the GSIÖ's program SI-THERAPIEoriginal. You can trust in our long standing experience in curriculum development, our expertise through decades of close cooperation and exchange with the leading experts in the field, and our professional identity as occupational therapy clinicians!
GSIÖ has developed two types of programs:
SI-THERAPIEoriginal is GSIÖ's curriculum for the certification program in SI-therapy for therapists. It has been developed in close cooperation with co-workers and successors of Dr. Ayres, and till today taught in part by professors from the origins of SI, Calfornia.
SI ORIGINAL is the GSIÖ's curriculum for well-grounded course series in Sensory integration targeted at diverse professions.
