Facilitate Motor Skill Learning in Pediatric, Adult, & Geriatric Patients
As a rehabilitation specialist, you are frequently faced with the challenge of how to best teach motor skills to your patients. Not only must you tailor your approach to the age of the patient, but in today’s healthcare environment you must also be adept at structuring the learning environment to promote the quickest and longest lasting changes.
Dr. Ben Sidaway helps you meet these challenges with the latest theoretical and applied perspectives in the field of motor control and learning and their implications for therapeutic evaluation and treatment. He will compare and contrast information processing and dynamic systems models in understanding normal and pathological human motor behavior, and help you see the treatment path that arises from both approaches. You will also get the opportunity to honestly critique current assumptions underlying motor control rehabilitation and discuss how theoretical frameworks can bias evaluation and treatment options. From here, you will go through the necessary steps to design your own unique treatment approaches to optimize functional outcomes in each patient.
