These courses are offered in cooperation with Elsevier Health and utilize the hardback textbook, “Stroke Rehabilitation: A Function-Based Approach, 3rd Edition” by Glen Gillen, EdD, OTR, FAOTA.

Extensively updated with the latest research in assessment and intervention, these essential courses present a holistic, application-based approach that integrates background medical information, samples of functionally based evaluations, and current treatment techniques and intervention strategies to help you confidently manage the growing number of stroke rehabilitation clients.

Module 1: covers pathophysiology, medical management and acute rehabilitation of stroke survivors, psychological aspects of stroke rehabilitation and improving participation and quality of live through occupation.

Module 2: covers the task-orientated approach, activity-based interventions in stroke rehabilitation and approaches to motor control dysfunction.

Module 3: covers trunk control, balance impairments and vestibular rehabilitation for stroke patients

Module 4: covers upper extremity function and management and rehabilitation
technologies to promote upper limb recovery

Module 5: covers edema control, splinting applications and functional mobility

Module 6: covers gait awareness, management of visual and visuospatial impairments and the impact of neurobehavioral deficits on ADLs.

Module 7: covers treatment of cognitive-perceptual deficits, speech and language deficits and enhancing the performance of ADLs after a stroke.

Module 8: covers parenting after stroke, driving and community mobility, dysphagia and sexual function and intimacy.

Module 9 covers seating and wheeled mobility, home evaluation and modifications, adaption to one-handed management of the environment and leisure participation after stroke.

Course Length: 8.0 contact hours

Stroke Rehabilitation: A Function-Based Approach: Module 6

Course Goals and Objectives:

Course Goals: This course is intended to instruct the student, through self-paced study, on gait awareness, managing visual and visiospatial impairments to optimize function in patients who have had strokes and the impact of neurobehavioral deficits on activities of daily living.

Student Objectives:

At the end of this course, the student will be able to:

1. Break down the components of normal gait

2. Identify common gait deviations after a stroke

3. Outline the basics of gait retraining

4. Identify and differentiate between commonly used orthoses and assistive devices

5. Relate how visual information is processed by the central nervous system

6. Analyze how everyday living is affected if visual and spatial impairments are present

7. Differentiate between procedures to perform a visual screening after a brain injury

8. Identify at least five intervention strategies focused on decreasing activity limitations and participation restrictions for those living with visual and spatial impairments

9. Identify the relationship between neurobehavioral concepts and task performance

10. Apply the theory on which the Arnadottir OT-ADL Neurobehavioral Evaluation (A-ONE) is based as a structure for clinical observations of stroke patients

11. Outline conceptual and operational definitions for neurobehavioral impairments and disability

12. Apply clinical reasoning skills based on the A-ONE theory for hypothesis testing.

13. Relate the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health and the Occupational Therapy Practice Framework, 2nd Edition, to the concepts used in the A-ONE

14. Identify examples of how strokes can cause different patterns of impairments affecting task performance
