This course will focus on providing a comprehensive approach to assessing people with neurological deficits. The foundational aspects of neuroplasticity will be reviewed to highlight the key aspects that should be included in your intervention design. Multiple examples will be provided of motor learning strategies and the ways they can be integrated into practice for any setting. Finally, the neurologic clinical practice guidelines for outcome measures will be discussed, along with the recommendations for their use.

Download Learning Objectives

1. Specific Interventions Utilizing Neuroplasticity

There are many ways to facilitate neuroplasticity in people who have neurological deficits. This chapter will emphasize the key aspects of neuroplasticity and how to integrate those strategies into practice.

2. Motor Control

This chapter will highlight the applications of motor learning and the motor priming paradigm. A review of the OPTIMAL theory will set the stage for many examples and integration of autonomy, enhanced expectancy, and external focus.

3. Motor Learning Strategies

The evidence regarding the benefits of integrating motor learning strategies into practice is undeniable. This chapter will review multiple motor learning theories and address specific strategies to facilitate therapists' ability to incorporate intensity, error, and motivation into any session.

4. Neurologic Clinical Practice Guidelines for Outcome Measures

Performing consistent and standardized outcome measures provides therapists the ability to assess if their interventions are challenging enough to the patient. They can also be used as an external cue to increase motivation. This chapter will review the clinical practice guidelines provided by the Academy of Neurologic Physical Therapy.
