This course will focus on providing a comprehensive approach to people with balance challenges who are walking. The primary concentration will be on people with neurological deficits and aging adults. The assessment process will start with movement analysis and determining the "why" of the balance deficit. Examples of intervention progressions that incorporate higher level dynamic aspects of balance will be demonstrated. In addition, multiple options for including motor learning strategies will be included throughout the demonstrations, resulting in multiple treatment ideas that can be incorporated into the therapist's next treatment session.
