Task Analysis and Task Specific Training 3: Design and Adaptation

Presented by Leslie Allison, PT, PhD

Task Analysis and Task Specific Training 3: Design and Adaptation

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

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.

Task Analysis and Task Specific Training 1: Theoretical Foundations

Presented by Leslie Allison, PT, PhD

Task Analysis and Task Specific Training 1: Theoretical Foundations

Subscribe now, and access clinical education and patient education—anytime, anywhere—with video instruction from recognized industry experts.

Movement is shaped by interactions between the individual, the task, and the environment. This course is the first in a three-part series, and will review the theoretical foundations of the Ecological Approach to understanding movement. The course will (1) describe the significant shift in our understanding of movement, away from earlier approaches that viewed the individual in isolation, and toward our current understanding that movement is shaped by and adapted to the demands of the task and environment, and (2) consider the clinical implications of this shift.
