AUDIENCE

Healthcare providers interested in stroke care.

EVENT DETAILS

Workshop Description: This one-day workshop provides an opportunity for health care professionals to gain insight into treating the individual with ataxia. Treating the individual with ataxia can often be a very challenging experience for the clinician. Perhaps this is because we have focused on addressing the clinical symptoms rather than the underlying impairments. This workshop will explore primary impairments present in the individual with ataxia, current theoretical evidence and treatment strategies using a NDT approach.

The overall objective of this workshop is to provide clinicians with knowledge and skills they can use in treating the individual with ataxia to promote positive functional outcomes.
Course Learning Objectives
Upon completion of the course the participants will:
 Gain knowledge of the current literature and how we use this information within the NDT Practice Model in
treating the individual with ataxia.
 Identify major impairments interfering with normal movement and function in the individual with ataxia.
 Demonstrate handling skills to address impairments in the individual with ataxia and work within functional
activities including activities in sitting, standing and gait.
 Demonstrate an increased repertoire of evaluation and treatment strategies for the individual with ataxia.

HIGHLIGHTS:

This five-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 in 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 management of the adult neurological patient. The information will be appropriate to many rehabilitation professionals and will be presented so that it can be incorporated into a variety of practice settings. The overall objective 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.
