2017 Program of Essential Competencies in
Sensory Integration

The Program of Essential Competencies in Sensory Integration (PECSI) will be returning for its second year starting in February 2017. The Spiral Foundation began offering this five course series in 2016 in response to the dissolution of the WPS/USC SI certification program. This five course program is designed to provide clinicians with a solid foundation of skills to understand, evaluate, and treat sensory integration difficulties. This program includes courses on sensory integration theory, clinical assessment, test administration, interpretation of patterns of sensory integration dysfunction and sensory integration intervention.

In the interest of convenience and accessibility participants have the option to take courses 1, 2, and 5 either live or online. Online courses are available as streamed videos that participants have free access to for the duration of the course. Courses 3 and 4, which address the administration and interpretation of the SIPT tests, must be attended in person.

Participants of both live and on-line formats will complete competency tests after each course segment to reinforce and assure learning of material. Participants who complete all five courses will receive a certificate of completion for the program.
