It is an exciting time in rehabilitation. The expansion in the literature regarding the benefits of incorporating motor learning into any type of intervention is undeniable. The latest evidence has shown profound implications for rehabilitation and recovery providing new insights into the optimization of skill learning. This course series takes these beneficial theories and turn them into practical and easy to use approaches for therapists to use in the clinic on Monday. Currently, the principles of motor learning are commonly found as definitions in textbooks that lack explicit utilization into clinical practice. However, the research on attaining a new motor skill is extensive and requires the inclusion of adjustments in feedback, incorporation of variability, problem solving, motivation and attention while addressing intensity. It is a critical time to disseminate this beneficial information into everyday practice. This module is designed to provide specific strategies, no matter the patient diagnosis, that can immediately be incorporated into any treatment session being performed. In addition, the course provides examples of how to adjust your practice to make the motor learning process the most effective, resulting in better outcomes.
