Grants for sensory integration

Physiotherapists can bid for grants of up to £5,000 being offered by the Sensory Integration Network. 

One of the three grants will support clinical research projects, while the other will support masters or doctoral level studies that examine sensory integration. A third grant of £500 will allow a conference attendee to disseminate research results.

The Sensory Integration Network aims to promote education, good practice and research into the theory and practice of sensory integration - an approach which was developed to treat sensory processing disorder.

Sensory integration usually develops in the course of ordinary childhood activities. But in some people it does not develop efficiently, leading to sensory processing disorder (SPD) which can effect academic achievement, personal identity and social participation.

The deadline for applications is 31 March. For further information visit: www.sensoryintegration.org.uk/grant-application-process.
