Accreditation Check:

Our need to engage in grooming is highly individualistic and contributes to individual self-identity and societal persona. People with acquired deficits in physical, cognitive, and visual skills can lose independence in grooming. In this course, you will learn how deficits influence grooming performance and consider how habit adaptations, environmental modifications, and interventions for person variables can maximize those outcomes.

1. Personal Meaning of Grooming

How, when, and where people groom is highly variable, culturally meaningful, and can contribute to individualism. In this chapter, the instructor will highlight the habits, routines, and roles that contribute to the meaning of grooming for people with and without a disability.

2. Task-Specific Interventions for People With Decreased Standing Tolerance or Endurance Issues

New limitations in physical skill and endurance can create disability in grooming. In this chapter, you will consider how limitations in standing tolerance and physical endurance affect grooming and apply certain adaptations/modifications to enhance success.

3. Task-Specific Interventions for People With Limitations in Upper Extremity Coordination and/or Muscle Strength

New limitations in physical skill and endurance can create disability in grooming. In this chapter, you will consider how limitations in fine motor coordination and strength can affect grooming and apply adaptations/modifications to enhance success.

4. Task-Specific Grooming Interventions for People With Cognitive Limitations: Part One

New or slowly occurring limitations in cognitive and visual skills can create disability in grooming. In this chapter, you will consider how limitations in arousal, attention, sequencing, organization, and initiation affect grooming and apply adaptations/modifications to enhance success.

5. Task-Specific Grooming Interventions for People With Cognitive and Visual Limitations: Part Two

New or slowly occurring limitations in cognitive and visual skills can create disability in grooming. In this chapter, you will consider how limitations in appropriate object use, memory, low vision, and hemianopsia affect grooming and apply adaptations/modifications to enhance success.

6. Use of Clinical Reasoning to Combine Adaptations for Multiple Deficits

Many of the patients we see have multiple and complex areas of disability which may include physical, cognitive, and/or visual issues. In this chapter, you will use clinical reasoning to consider when it is appropriate and complimentary to combine adaptations.
