Course Description:

For the 2020/21 Snowsports Season, PSIA/AASI-Central offers an Alternative Pathway to obtain Senior Specialist 2. This is an entirely virtual pathway where you will work with the Senior Specialist Educational Staff to develop a project related to a specific Senior Profile attribute.  This process is designed to provide further development of general Senior Profile knowledge and an opportunity for each candidate to specialize in an attribute specific to the Senior Profile.


You are developing a fully researched project related to a specific attribute of a client who fits the Senior Profile. The project can be an article, a slide presentation, a video, a workbook, and a "Ted Talk" - any format you are comfortable presenting. Your goal is to be the expert on that topic. Reference materials are a must. Videos of demonstrations and/or clients for movement analysis could help support your research.



 As the Senior Profile relates to changes that we experience as we progress in our years, any topic related to one of those changes is acceptable. Consider topics around the VAK model (Visual/Auditory/Kinesthetic) and/or the CAP model (Cognitive/Physical/Affective). A possible research topic could focus on how Vision changes affect a senior client and adapt to those changes. A research paper would need to detail changes, why changes occur, adjust for changes, identify a client with visual changes, etc. Who/What/Why/When/Where/How.

Your project will be presented to the Senior Specialist Educational Staff and may also be part of future development and training of Senior Specialist instructors.
