1. Strategies at the Environment Level
In this chapter, J.J. Mowder-Tinney discusses the appropriateness of integrating variability into the plan of care. Variability is discussed through problem solving and the challenge point framework to keep the learner actively involved in problem solving during the process of finding movement solutions. Two different options for feedback are discussed along with their impact on function.
2. Focus of Attention
A learner’s focus of attention can be either internal, monitoring the way they move, or external, focusing on the actions of their movements and if the goal was achieved. J.J. Mowder-Tinney explores a comparison of two different cueing options to switch from internal to external focus of attention to increase effectiveness and efficiency of movement.
3. Intensity and Mobility Training
Intensity incorporated into mobility training provides four benefits, which will be discussed throughout this chapter. Learners will be able to gauge the level of intensity based on a patient’s heart rate, as well as use seven dimensions of challenge to adapt a mobility-training program.
4. Practice Session: Self-Cueing
J.J. Mowder-Tinney explains the importance of self-control cueing to keep your patient engaged and challenge themselves in motor learning. This practice session gives you quick and easy steps to facilitate your patient's involvement in their therapy. Starting from the beginning, keep your patient engaged and allow them to challenge themselves throughout the rehabilitation process.
