There’s no greater triumph than seeing your patients regain their functional independence, especially when you’ve played a pivotal role in their progress.
But when you’re working with patients who are older or affected by movement/neurological disorders, neuromotor deficits often impede progress, interfering with functional multitasks, such as walking while talking, that combine cognition, communication, and motor function.
This can drag therapy to a crawl, limit your clinical effectiveness, and cause a variety of setbacks, including:
- Communication deficits
- Poor executive function
- Memory/attention issues
- Task avoidance
- Difficulty performing ADLs
- Functional codependence
- Gait and balance problems
- Anxiety, frustration and depression
- Apathy and isolation
Without intervention, these patients often become resigned to living life in slow motion, limited to basic tasks and always feeling a step behind in their work, home and community. But with the latest advances in dual-task training, you can change this.
Let Physiotherapist Josefa Domingos and Speech-Language Pathologist John Dean be your guides to success as they walk you through practical applications of dual-task training for your patients.
Learn how to unmask deficits that are secretly plaguing progress, integrate dual-task interventions into both therapy and daily life, and rapidly improve performance of functional activities between therapy sessions.
Purchase now, and discover your patients’ joy and gratitude when you show them how much more they can accomplish, using the fun, engaging framework for dual-task training you’ll learn in this hands-on recording.
