SUPPORTING RECOVERY OF THE UPPER EXTREMITY DURING ADLS FOLLOWING
STROKE OR BRAIN INJURY USING AN NDT APPROACH
SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 28, 2019
BACK WORKS SPINAL & SPORTS REHABILITATION PRESENTS
Course Description: Often after a stroke or brain injury, it is challenging to find a role for the more involved upper
extremity (UE) while performing ADLs. This one day workshop will present NDT principles related to incorporating the
more involved or hemiplegic UE into Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) through using the UE in an active support role.
The course will provide an opportunity to explore practical tips to engage the UE in active support during functional
tasks in a variety of environments (e.g., at the bedside, in a wheelchair, at a table).
Requirements: Participants must be registered Occupational Therapists or Therapy Assistants.
