Often after a stroke or brain injury, it is challenging to find a role for the more involved upper extremity (UE) while performing ADLs. This one day workshop will present NDT principles related to incorporating the more involved or hemiplegic UE into Activities of Daily Living (ADLs) through using the UE in an active support role. The course will provide an opportunity to explore practical tips to engage the UE in active support during functional tasks in a variety of environments (e.g., at the bedside, in a wheelchair, at a table).Upon completion of the course, participants will:

  • Learn about the benefits of using the UE as an active support during functional tasks for clients who have neurological impairments and particularly as applied to the management of the hemiplegic UE
  • Develop basic problem solving strategies to assess trunk and UE alignment
  • Use task and movement analysis skills to identify what is required to perform some ADLs and how we might be able to incorporate the more involved UE into these tasks by having the UE in active support.
  • Develop basic handling skills to improve trunk and upper extremity alignment to promote active support during ADLs
  • Problem solve strategies of how to set up the client's environment to enable the client to try and use the more involved UE in active support during ADLs
