Projects

Ayres Sensory Integration 2020 Vision - Focused on scholarship, assessment and training, the ASI 2020 Vision is to strengthen and solidify the international presence of Ayres Sensory Integration.  I participate in, support and promote this important project through my involvement in developing trainings and assessment tools (EASI).

The Evaluation of Ayres Sensory Integration (EASI) - Goal #2 of the ASI 2020 Vision.  I have been on the development team as a lead field and pilot tester and will be leading the USA normative data collection team in 2018. 

Beta testing and consulting with NOTA online documentation system.
