presented by Salvador Bondoc
With the foundational knowledge presented in Part 1, the learner will now explore the application of this knowledge to the evaluation and assessment process. Part 2, therefore, focuses on an approach to evaluation to generate a targeted intervention plan for the neurological upper extremity. The use of physical tests and measures will be discussed and demonstrated.
Salvador Bondoc is a tenured professor of occupational therapy and has been a faculty member of Quinnipiac University since 2006. He received his post-professional Doctor of Occupational Therapy degree from Creighton University in 2004.

This chapter will provide an overview of the ICF Model while integrating the ICF Model with a systems approach to assess the neurological upper extremity.
This chapter will continue the review of the ICF Model while demonstrating and explaining the use of certain physical tests and measures specific to the neurologic upper extremity.
Using assessment findings from a demonstration, this chapter will help the viewer recognize different patterns of the neurologic upper extremity and describe corresponding approaches to treatment.
