Neurological rehab is not the same old thing anymore. The area of neuro rehabilitation has exploded over the last 10-15 years and some of the things therapists used to do clinically have changed. There is new rationale and new information about how therapists should change what they do in clinical practice.
This course focuses on an intro to neurological rehab, motor control, motor learning, recovery of function, and assessment and treatment of postural control and balance. Topics covered include identification of emerging rehab management techniques for patients with neurological dysfunction, four stages of motor control and key ways to increas the effect of proprioceptors, as well as identification and differentiation between nondeclarative and declarative forms of learning. Among other subjects, therapists will learn to identify motor strategies during perturbed stance and basic components of postural control.

Course Goals & Objectives:
This course is intended to instruct the professional through a self-paced study on motor control, motor learning, and recovery of neurological rehabilitation.
At the conclusion of this course the participant will be able to:
- Recognize three current theories of motor control.
- Identify three emerging rehabilitation management techniques for patients with neurological dysfunction.
- Differentiate between motor control, motor learning, and motor development.
- Identify four stages of motor control and eight ways to potentiate proprioceptors.
- Recognize five special senses and four actions systems.
- Differentiate between three non-declarative and declarative forms of learning.
- Recognize emerging theories and other concepts of motor learning.
- Recognize four primary neuromuscular impairments and three components of spasticity.
- Identify three motor strategies during perturbed stance.
- Recognize five basic components of postural control.
- Identify five performance based measures used in functional assessments.
Criteria for Completion:
A score of 70% or more is considered passing. Scores of less than 70% indicate a failure to understand the material and the test will need to be taken again until a passing score has been achieved.
