Progress in Practice: Activity-Based Restorative Therapy (ABRT)

Progress in Practice is a premier educational event bringing together physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, physicians, and rehabilitation professionals.

This two-day workshop offers participants the opportunity to gain skills to advance their practice in neurorehabilitation. Shifting from traditional compensatory models to a more progressive restorative focus, Activity-Based Restorative Therapy (ABRT) uses a combination of rehabilitation techniques to provide near-normal input to both optimize the nervous system for recovery and offset rapid aging and chronic complications.

Participants will learn the scientific basis, hands-on skills, and clinical decision-making associated with implementation of an ABRT program.


September 22-23, 2017 at the Kennedy Krieger Institute in Baltimore, MD. Register here.
