Accreditation Check:

Neurological and functional recovery following a neurological insult vastly vary in terms of their clinical presentation and the corresponding interventions. Part 3 covers evidence-based interventions for upper extremity conditions with significant impairments during acute to sub-acute stages of recovery. This course, Part 4, is a continuation, with its focus mainly on interventions that address the upper limb with some recovered motor functions.

1. Clinical Presentation

This chapter describes the clinical presentation of the neurological upper extremity classified as having mild tomoderate neuromotor impairments.

2. Constraint-Induced Therapy and Task-Oriented Therapy

This chapter identifies various impairment-focused and function-based interventions appropriate for the mild to moderately impaired upper extremity and describes the indications and scientific and theoretical bases for specific interventions.

3. Augmenting Task Practice Through Orthotics

This chapter describes the use of orthotics as a way to circumvent or support specific hand limitations to enable improved performance and increase engagement in task-oriented training.

4. Bilateral Strategies

This chapter provides a description of the different levels of bilateral hand use and describes specific tasks for each level of bilateral functioning as a critical element of task-oriented training.
