This course will include lecture, laboratory practice, and the assessment and treatment of an actual client with hemiparesis. The course will focus on analyzing and treating gait deviations commonly observed in adult patients with brain lesions. Participants will be taught NDT facilitation strategies to improve the patient’s functional performance in a variety of gait activities. Therapists will have an opportunity to practice a variety of treatment, handling skills that address stance stability, limb advancement, and balance during stepping and stair climbing activities. Problem solving the impairments, treatment plan, and functional outcome goals for a specific patient will be discussed and demonstrated.
