GBS's Shannie Easterby Receives New Certification

Hosted by The Gillen Brewer School


Congratulations to Shannie Easterby, Head of the Occupational Therapy Department at the Gillen Brewer School, on being the only professional in New York City to receive a Certificate in Ayres Sensory Integration, as of October 2022! 

Ayres Sensory Integration is a well-established and growing area of therapeutic practice with applications in various settings including the home, school, and community. The framework, developed by A. Jean Ayres, PhD, OTR, FAOTA, is designed to improve sensory perceptual abilities, self-regulation, motor skills, and praxis. 

In order to receive her certification, Shannie completed 180 hours of training working with the Collaborative for Leadership in Ayres Sensory Integration. As a hybrid program, she was able to study and learn with practitioners from all over the world. 

"I look forward to fostering a deeper understanding of sensory integration throughout the Gillen Brewer community. I am passionate about utilizing evidence-based sensory integration assessment and intervention techniques to allow the students we work with to reach their fullest potential," said Shannie. 

Congratulations again to Shannie on this awesome accomplishment!
