Ayres Sensory Integration 2020 Vision

The year 2020 marks what would have been the 100 year birthday of Dr. A. Jean Ayres.  In commemoration of this milestone, the following vision is proposed:

Ayres Sensory Integration will have a strong, international presence with demonstrated scholarship, means for valid, comprehensive assessment and pathways for training to ensure the ongoing development, standards of excellence and effective implementation of this important work.

So many of us focus on the stars we can see.  Jean had a gift … she said “You know, it's easy to see the bright stars, but just move your eyes off to the side and suddenly out the side of your eyes are the less bright stars... you know, those are the most interesting ones.” And that's really where she spent her time-in the realm of the unknown. How as a scientist then, can you prove or disprove the theory of what you think you have just seen out of the corner of your eye? ~from A Jean Ayres, The Pioneer behind Sensory Integration.
