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.
