ISIT 1 | Sensory Integration (SI), Relationships and Self-regulation
How can you help parents make the most of what’s known as ‘the 1001 critical days?’ It is during the period between conception and 2 years old that infants develop the foundations for future learning, relationships and behaviour.
We know that at birth, a newborn’s genetic and congenital make-up provides a base for their engagement style, based on the infant’s sensory profile. But the way an infant is nurtured, their early relationships and the synergy between sensory processing and their environment, strongly influences the baby’s ability to self-regulate.
Infant Sensory Integration Training (ISIT) 1 online course covers the fundamentals of Sensory Integration (SI). You learn about the development of the sensory systems in infants, and how to recognise function and dysfunction. The course also explores the parent-infant relationship and how to nurture attachment.

On completion of the course, you will:
- be more equipped to help parents understand their role in the development of self-regulation
