NOTE: Nothing in this course is to enable or permit the learner to apply techniques outside of the scope of practice in their individual state and discipline.


  • Identify the concepts of neuroplasticity, recovery versus compensation, and motor learning/motor control as it relates to acute stroke rehabilitation.
  • Identify research evidence on best practice in acute stroke rehabilitation, as well as rehab in the subacute and chronic phases of stroke.
  • Identify and perform specific clinical examination of posture/alignment in supine and sitting, balance, gait, and functional mobility.
  • Identify common postural abnormalities and movement disorders following stroke.
  • Identify and practice treatment strategies and handling skills to facilitate improved alignment in supine, and improved, upright posture in sitting and standing.
  • Demonstrate concepts of normal movement and handling skills into functional mobility.
  • Identify general precautions and handling strategies for the hemiplegic upper extremity.
  • Demonstrate treatment strategies /handling techniques to promote increased and prevention of learned non-use of the affected side in persons with hemiplegia.
  • Identify and demonstrate the common gait deviations and causative impairments present following stroke.
  • Identify the evidence regarding gait recovery following stroke.
  • Apply knowledge of gait impairments and deviations to create the appropriate interventions, and/or assistive device and orthotic prescription.
