Progress in Practice: Activity-Based Restorative Therapy Workshop

Progress in Practice is a premier educational event geared towards physical therapists, occupational therapists, nurses, physicians, and rehabilitation professionals who regularly care for individuals with paralysis.

This two-day workshop gives participants the opportunity to gain skills to advance their practice in neurorehabilitation and activity-based restorative therapy (ABRT). Shifting from traditional compensatory models to a more progressive restorative focus, 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 in their own clinical environments.

Upcoming Dates and Locations:

  • May 19-20, 2018 in Houston, TX - Shriner's Hospitals for Children - Houston
