One of the hallmark qualities of the NDT trained clinician is the desire and ability to systematically assess each patient to determine both intact and impaired body systems to create a very specific and unique treatment plan. When helping those who have suffered neurological insult or injury, the ability to pinpoint impairments specific to the individual is crucial. So often those with neurological impairments are not dealing with one isolated issue, but rather a compilation of systems not always working in concert.


Educational Level: Intermediate

By the end of this distance learning activity, participants will be able to:

1. Indicate the importance of arousal as a precursor to motor learning in the lower level individual with stroke or brain injury.

2. Identify the 5 levels of attention in order from most basic to advanced.

3. Indicate how mood/affect may impact cognition and/or functional performance in individuals following stroke.
