STROKE, BRAIN INJURY AND OTHER NEURO-MOTOR DISORDERS
NOV 30 – DEC 1, 2019
Course description:
This two day introductory level course provides a unique opportunity for health care professionals to gain insight into
the basic principles of the NDT approach and how it is applied to clinical practice to promote recovery of function in
individuals with neurological impairments. Current theoretical foundations and evidence supporting an NDT approach
will be presented as well as specific and practical information about the management of the adult neurological
patient. The overall objective of this course is to enable participants to bring information back to their facility and
apply it toward promoting more functional movement and achieving functional outcomes with their patients.
Course Learning Objectives
Upon completion of the course the participants will:
 State the basic philosophy underlying the NDT approach to the treatment of adults with neurological
dysfunction
 Demonstrate basic skill in analyzing movement, both normal and abnormal, during sitting and standing
activities and some transitions
 Identify major impairments interfering with normal movement and function in the adult with stroke, brain
injury and other neuromotor disorders such as incomplete spinal cord injury.
 Demonstrate basic handling skills to enhance patient’s functional movement as related to his/her functional
goals
 Demonstrate an increased repertoire of evaluation
