Presented by Carrie Ciro, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA

Dementia: Improving Activities of Living

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

In this course, the participant will receive a broad overview of the activities of daily living (ADLs) that dementia patients excel at, while addressing common errors they may make as a function of the severity of their dementia. Assessment of ADLs, with a focus on meaningful goals, will be introduced as a motivator for therapy and an enhancer of recovery. This course outlines a step-by-step task-oriented training using a motor learning framework and includes opportunities to develop meaningful treatment plans.

Motor Rehabilitation Post-Stroke: Principles of Neuroplasticity and Motor Learning

Motor Rehabilitation Post-Stroke: Principles of Neuroplasticity and Motor Learning

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Hemiparesis is one of the most common impairments experienced by individuals with stroke. It is one of the most disabling of conditions, and regaining adequate use of the arm and leg after stroke is a highly desired goal for many individuals. Currently, the only treatment for hemiparesis is motor rehabilitation. Thus, it is important that therapists provide the most efficacious and effective motor rehabilitation. The goal of this course is to present the attendee with information about the kinds of motor training that facilitate the most motor function recovery in the upper extremities after stroke. The first module will review the neurology of the motor system, and discuss the main motor impairments that arise following a stroke. Module two will present the principles of practice that facilitate neuroplasticity in the motor system. These principles serve as a basis for designing motor rehabilitation protocols for promoting motor recovery after stroke. The third module will discuss the evidence for the most commonly studied upper extremity motor rehabilitation protocols, while the last module of the course will expose the attendee to experimental treatments for post-stroke hemiplegia/hemiparesis.

Brain injury and/or stroke can cause a multitude of visual problems. This course will help the generalist working with clients, who may have vision loss, determine basic visual field problems as well as coming up with basic treatment options. We will discuss ways to determine what type of scanning pattern a client is using and improve scanning techniques. This will help your clients to compensate for decreased visual field and improve independence with IADLs.
