Additionally, this application will reveal incorporation of recent advances in motivation, motor learning, and practice - displaying all through videotape case study demonstration. Attendees will be engaged in a thought-provoking presentation that challenges previous misconceptions about the timeline of recovery and potential for improvement years after CVA and the potential to recover with MS, PD, concussion in the elderly, etc. This presentation builds on recent evidence of high-intensity interval training, procedural memory training, circuit training, task specific overtraining, motor learning, OPTIMAL, forced-use and many more – across mobility, communication, cognition and ADL applications providing the learner from all practice points with tools to rehabilitate clients regardless of equipment and technological availability.
