This second course of a two-part series will guide attendees through the science and application of dual-tasking (DT) in persons with known neurologic impairment. Drs. Mike Studer and Rob Winningham will present the evidence for examining dual-task tolerance in cases of stroke, mild cognitive impairment, Parkinson's disease, and concussion. Attendees will receive specific interventions and prescriptions for each of the conditions featured. This course promises to demystify DT and elevate your practice from good to great in your application of DT in the clinic.

Learning Objectives
  • Determine three key points of clinical relevance of DT across the four neurologic conditions
  • Distinguish four modalities of DT interference or modes of distraction
  • Analyze three objective measures of DT
  • Produce four clinical indicators that DT intervention is resulting in patient improvement
  • Correlate the unique attributes of DT intervention across each of the four neurologic conditions
