This course will focus on providing a comprehensive approach for people with a neurological deficit who have challenges with ambulation. The assessment process will start with practicing and improving movement analysis skills to assist in determining the why of the functional limitation. Commonly identified impairments in this population will be reviewed based on the latest evidence. Finally, the main focus will be on providing a variety of intervention ideas with multiple examples of how to integrate optimal motor learning strategies into your interventions for the treatment session the next day.

Chapters & Learning Objectives

Download Learning Objectives

1. Analysis of Movement

This chapter will review different movement strategies commonly seen when a person with a neurological deficit is limited in ambulation. The foundation for improving function for this population requires practicing observational skills to improve focused intervention planning.

2. Common Impairments

This chapter will build on the knowledge of typical movement from Chapter 1 and discuss the potential impairments limiting the movement. The key to reaching optimal outcomes with limited time is staying focused on treating the priority impairments identified for each individual. This chapter will provide multiple examples of this process with commonly seen limitations.

3. Motor Learning Strategies

This chapter will provide multiple specific examples of how to incorporate a variety of motor learning strategies into practice for this movement. It will include a demonstration of a session that shows the progression of varying activities incorporating motor learning considerations including intensity, error, motivation, and external cues.
