For more than 30 years, the University of Southern California Mrs. TH Chan Division of Occupational Science & Occupational Therapy has offered an intensive training program in sensory integration, originated by Dr. A. Jean Ayres, Ph.D., OTR, FAOTA. This world-renowned training program, called OT610, is held at Pediatric Therapy Network in Torrance, California, provides small groups of occupational, physical and speech therapists graduate-level training in assessment and clinical reasoning and intervention strategies of sensory integration. The OT610 program is the only one of its kind in the world and since its inception in 1977, therapists from 38 countries have participated in this unique experience. 

Training Highlights Include:

Weekly seminars presented by some of the top researchers and clinicians in sensory integration.

Mentorship by master clinicians during direct treatment of children with sensory-integrative disorders and other neurological and developmental disabilities.

This three-month course begins every January, April, and September.  OT610 is held at PTN but the registration process is through USC.
