Movement is shaped by interactions between the Individual, the Task, and the Environment. This course is the third in a four-part series, and will connect task and environmental analysis to the design and implementation of patient evaluation components and intervention activities. Using the knowledge gained from both 'general' activity analysis [of tasks and environments] and 'specific' analysis of an individual patient's motor performance, clinicians comprehend their patient's current ability to meet the demands of the task and environment, and determine what sensori-motor problems the patient needs to learn to solve in order to move more skillfully and function more successfully.

1. Pose the Problems That Patients Learn to Solve

Intentional manipulation of tasks and environments is used to pose the very problems the patient must learn to solve. This chapter reinforces the shift in clinical practice away from the prescription of externally defined ‘ideal’ movement solutions toward the intentional creation of targeted challenges that offer problem-solving practice.

2. Task-Oriented Examination

This chapter presents the ‘task-oriented examination,’ in which the individual’s motor performance is evaluated within the context of performing meaningful tasks in real-world environments.

3. Task-Oriented Approach to Intervention

This chapter presents the ‘task-oriented approach to intervention,’ in which the individual participates in the selection and choice of meaningful tasks and is offered targeted task challenges in real-world environments that are adapted to maintain challenge as the patient improves.

4. Case Example

This chapter presents a case example of an individual recovering from a TBI. Viewers will see her perform various tasks of daily life and be asked to assess the challenges of both the environmental constraints and the tasks she needs to perform.
