Progression of Action and Refining Movement
Neurological recovery is a process and therapists have limited time to make the maximal impact. At each patient contact, it is important to continue to identify the path forward toward the patient’s goal. In Standard Four, the emphasis will be on resolving diagnoses, reckoning with the most intransigent ones, and recognizing the interaction of movement diagnoses. As some diagnoses are resolved, other diagnoses may emerge and become more compelling for attention. Choices regarding function of the arm and hand during reach will be stressed. Continued development of in-depth clinical reasoning leads to the culmination of the course: the ability to produce meaningful treatment outcomes like a Certified Neurorehabilitation Professional™.
