Can I start SI Module 1 course if I am not a qualified occupational therapist, physiotherapist or speech & language therapist?

Suzanne Leyland -

Our accredited SI Modular Pathway courses are designed for qualified occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech & language therapists to develop the skills required to practice Sensory Integration Therapy in the context of their particular professional background. This is advanced training which builds upon their existing knowledge, so it is not a beginner's course.

Medical doctors and psychologists registered with HCPC or have GMC registration (or the equivalent) can apply for SI Module 1 only.

Applicants from other backgrounds can submit their CV to our Postgraduate Education committee who will assess whether they have the appropriate knowledge and understanding required for SI Module 1 only. Please complete the application form here.

Only occupational therapists, physiotherapists and speech & language therapists are eligible to take SI Module 2/3 which is required to practice sensory integration therapy. Applicants from other backgrounds are not eligible to take the SI Module 2 and 3 courses.

The SI Network understands that there is a desire from non-occupational therapists, speech & language therapists and physiotherapists to receive accredited training in sensory integration and we will be looking into this in the future.  

In the meantime, we do offer the other courses for non-therapists.
