In many rehabilitation settings, therapists are faced with the challenge of how best to teach motor skills to patients. In pediatric settings, the challenge is to optimize the learning of new skills, while in neurologic and geriatric settings, therapists primarily focus on changing inappropriate motor behavior and the re-learning of motor skills. Successful therapists must be able to accurately determine the cause of motor skill impairments and then design treatment approaches that facilitate the learning or re-learning of motor skills. In today's fast paced health care environment, therapists must be adept in structuring the learning environment to promote the quickest and longest lasting changes in a patient's motor skills.
In this course, you will examine current theoretical and applied perspectives in the field of motor control and learning and will discuss their implications for therapeutic evaluation and treatment. Course discussion will be focused at the behavioral level and will compare and contrast information processing and dynamic systems models in understanding normal and pathological human motor behavior. Implications for treatment stemming from both approaches will be examined. You will constructively criticize current assumptions underlying motor control rehabilitation and discuss how theoretical frameworks bias evaluation and treatment options. Given an understanding of past and current approaches to motor control and learning, you will be able to flexibly design their own unique treatment approaches to optimize functional outcomes in each patient.
