Neural Foundations of Ayres Sensory Integration®

“ASI intervention is based on the concept of neuroplasticity, that is, that the nervous system changes in response to experience. Thus, through guided participation in sensorimotor activities targeting a child’s individual needs, ASI intervention is hypothesized to improve function, skill, and behaviour as a basis for participation in everyday activities. More specifically, ASI proposes that active engagement, in individually tailored sensorimotor activities, contextualized in play, at the just-right-challenge, promotes adaptive behaviours via neuroplastic changes that occur in response to these experiences.” (Lane et al 2019)
