USC/WPS S.I. Certification Program Course 3

Course 3: From Interpretation to Intervention

Course 3 provides information necessary for interpreting assessment data, and for using this data to plan intervention strategies. Special emphasis is placed on the analysis and interpretation of SIPT results.  The use of case studies demonstrates the clinical reasoning process in interpreting assessment results and using this information to plan and implement intervention. This course trains participants to use and understand the Sensory Integration and Praxis Test™ and other related measures of sensory functions so that clients with a variety of diagnoses and referring problems can be assessed using the SIPT as the “gold standard.” The use of case studies demonstrates the clinical reasoning process in interpreting assessment results and using this information for intervention planning and implementation.

Learning Objectives

Following this course, participants will be able to:

  • Analyze and interpret measures of sensory integration, with particular emphasis on SIPT results
  • Describe patterns of sensory integrative dysfunction by placing individual test results within the framework identified through research
  • Plan intervention programs in a variety of settings for children identified as having sensory integrative dysfunction
  • Describe the relationship between assessment results and the functional performance at home, at school, and in the community
  • Identify the ways in which research supports assessment and intervention
