Course Description
Very little exists in the literature regarding effective physical handling treatment programs for adults with cerebral palsy. Adults with neuromotor disorders generally experience deterioration of physical skills over time, due to lessened availability to treatment programs and secondary physical and orthopedic issues. This article presents two different long distance consultation models for improving functional skills in adults with long standing neuromotor disorders. A series of singlesubject anecdotal studies demonstrate that loss of functional skills can be abated and indeed significant improvement of functional skills can be attained through specifically designed consultation services and skilled application of treatment principles for the adult population.

4. List at least 3 key factors necessary to improving functional performance.
