Intervention Techniques for the Hemiplegic Upper Limb
Presented by Christine Griffin, OTR/L, MS, BCPR
Course: #3903 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Evidence based intervention techniques for the hemiplegic upper limb are required to increase functional performance for individuals with stroke. Discussion will include current evidence for intervention techniques such as NMES, slings, splints, traditional neurorehabilitation techniques, and functional use.

Motor Learning in Neurological Occupational Therapy: Concepts and Applications
Presented by Stephen Page, OTR/L, PhD, MS, FAHA, FACRM, FAOTA
Course: #3834 Level: Introductory1 Hour
While motor learning is a fundamental goal of any therapeutic regimen, information on this concept varies widely in academic and conference programming. The purpose of this course is to identify, describe, and apply motor learning concepts to neurological practice.

Utilizing Occupation to Maximize Neuroplasticity in Acquired Brain Injury Survivors
Presented by Angela Reimer, OTD, MOT, OTR, CBIST
Course: #3767 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
In order for OT practitioners to fully integrate the concepts of motor learning and neuroplasticity, these concepts must be better understood. This course focuses on educating therapists on neuroplasticity, what drives functional improvement and how OT practitioners can utilize motor learning theory and occupation-based interventions to improve functional outcomes.

Management of the Hemiplegic Shoulder
Presented by Christine Griffin, OTR/L, MS, BCPR
Course: #3671 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Occupational performance for stroke patients is limited by hemiplegia of the shoulder complex and upper limb. Discussion will include anatomy of the shoulder and scapula, biomechanics, evaluation of the hemiplegic shoulder complex and trunk, and current evidence for treatment techniques and interventions such as NMES, taping, pain management, and functional use.

Applied Behavioral Analysis (ABA) Techniques For Pediatric Occupational Therapists: Applications To Motor Learning
Presented by Brittany Hand, PhD, OTR/L
Course: #3424 Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course will cover basic ABA techniques and will explain how those techniques can be applied in motor learning interventions to optimize patient outcomes.

This course is part of the OT Neuro Series.

Executive Functions and Everyday Activities
Presented by Yael Goverover, PhD, OTR/L
Course: #3498 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
This course will review executive functions and their association with activities of daily living. The course will describe traditional and non-traditional evidence-based assessments and cognitive rehabilitation interventions.

A Conceptual Model for Vision Rehabilitation
Presented by Pamela Roberts, PhD, MSHA, OTR/L, SCFES, FAOTA, CPHQ, FNAP
Course: #3390 Level: Intermediate1 Hour
Vision impairments are prevalent after acquired brain injury. The purpose of this presentation is to describe a conceptual model for vision rehabilitation, explain its potential clinical inferences, and discuss its translation into occupational therapy practice.

This course is part of the OT Neuro Series.

Evaluating Motor Recovery after Stroke: Application of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment for the Upper Extremity
Presented by Lisa Juckett, MOT, OTR/L
Course: #3338 Level: Introductory1 Hour
In the adult rehabilitation setting, occupational therapists are often responsible for addressing upper extremity dysfunction in the post-stroke population. Quantifying motor impairment through the use of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment can assist therapists in monitoring patient progress and motor recovery.

Task Oriented Training at Home (TOTE Home)
Presented by Veronica T. Rowe, PhD, OTR/L, CBIST
Course: #3284 Level: Introductory1 Hour
This course will describe how to deliver task oriented training for hemiparesis after stroke in the home environment with the guidance of Motor Learning and Occupational Adaptation theories. It will go beyond using repetition with functional tasks and emphasize evidence supporting problem solving abilities needed for adaptation and ultimately increased function over time.

"Arming" You with Therapies: Evidence Based Techniques for Upper Extremity Motor NeuroRehabilitation
Presented by Stephen Page, OTR/L, PhD, MS, FAHA, FACRM, FAOTA
Course: #2759 Level: Intermediate2 Hours
Arm weakness is frequently encountered in neurorehabilitation, and its incidence is expected to increase during the next decade. Led by one of the field’s most active clinician-researchers developing upper extremity treatments, this seminar reviews common upper extremity impairments, their causes, symptoms, and the rationale and evidence supporting the most effective treatments. The seminar will also discuss which therapies can be used successfully with various levels of upper extremity impairment, as well as resources to find and identify the best upper extremity assessments, and the application of assessments into practice. Come and learn the latest treatments from one of the leaders in the field of neurorehabilitation!
