This course will provide therapists various treatment ideas to improve function for patients with neurological deficits. A framework for therapy will be reviewed stressing the importance of neuroplasticity and the research supporting this theory. Explicit intervention ideas will be given and organized in a systematic way to focus on analysis of movement, identification of impairments, and provide a variety of ways to incorporate motor learning strategies into functional movements.
