"The course was even better that I anticipated. After only three years in the profession, I felt lost. Now I feel I have a base on which to build which hopefully will give me more confidence in the treatments my patients receive. I feel a little more grounded but there is a lot of work to do!"

"Well I especially enjoyed the humor and sharing and appreciated your patience and allowing us to make mistakes and showing us the proper technique and laughing with us and not at us! You all have done a great job organizing the class (progression of events and information). Thank you for hopefully making me an asset to my profession by adding to my expertise. I hope to see you in the future."

What therapists are saying about courses offered by Recovering Function...

"I felt the material presented was the perfect amount for me. It helped me see the big picture with normal movement and how to help achieve it. The course challenged me without overwhelming me. I loved this course! Your warm personality made it easier to learn." "Very well organized, instructive and interactive. This course has helped me gain a better knowledge of how to implement NDT when working with patients who have hemiplegia." "Yes, the instructor did a very smooth job. Other courses lost me with multiple speakers, uneven presentations, unclear objectives. You were great, inviting, motivating, moved things right along. Never a dull moment. I enjoyed your comments on goal focused treatment. Our clinic has been focusing on this for the last 5 - 6 years. The idea of not needing all those little boxes on an eval threw me. It took me a couple of hours to accept. It will be interesting to share the ideas with co-workers. I think they will agree." "The instructor has an excellent, engaging and humorous personality. She made the material ALIVE!" "I enjoyed this course. This sheds light on the usefulness of therapy. Looking forward to taking the three-week course. The instructors were knowledgeable and enthusiastic reminding me that I can make a difference. It's good to be reminded of that every so often." "It gave me a good foundation for treatment of stroke patients. I now have the tools for analyzing what the patient's problems are and how I can assist with these problems. Now I have the knowledge to make my treatment plan more effective." "Before coming to this course I was experiencing burn out. I have been working for 8 years and love therapy; however with the therapy companies pushing you to be MORE PRODUCTIVE I had to rush my treatment. Now this course has relieved me and I now know how I can make a change." "I can incorporate this information to help my patients work more in midline, possibly get them independent in dressing, bathing. I can also help them get more awareness of the affected side." "Exceeded my expectations. It tied together information I learned in school, through my internship with an NDT certified CI , and made the information and techniques applicable to my patients." "Very valuable, wonderful instructors that focus on the positive things we are doing with patients. Very motivating. I have never been this focused and alert for five 8-hour days in a class situation. Thanks so much." "Patient treatments were great. Loved the instructors. Great constructive feedback, not over-bearing. Would definitely recommend this course to colleagues. Thank you for making this information accessible." "I really appreciated the hands-on and hand-over-hand demonstrations." "This course not only reinforced learning by allowing immediate hands-on techniques after the lecture, but was also a lot of fun! " "Great Instruction - The instructors are not only great clinicians but they have a wonderful ability to teach as well. Thanks so much." "Now that I can begin to break down and analyze movement, not from individual muscles but from motor control, I can apply the knowledge with all of my CVA treatments." "You guys are great! Increased energy, obvious passion for subject, students, profession and patients."

"I feel like I have direction and meaning to take back and incorporate into treatment." "I enjoyed this course immensely. I found that enough time was allowed for each area and I can't wait to take another course." "Great class - good job of covering and following the course outline. Good time with lab work (demo - practice - questions) and patient treatment sessions. Great humor and rapport between instructors and among participants." "This was an excellent course. I was only partially sold on NDT before this course and now I can't wait to take the next two courses on the UE and the three-week course."

"I will go back and revisit some patients for whom I had "plateaued". Now I have ideas on how to facilitate increased movement and how to decrease pain. I will now focus more on normal movement vs. compensation and adaptive equipment."

What clients and their families are saying about therapists trained by Recovering Function...

"My husband had a stroke in January. We've been doing therapy ever since. In October he fell and broke his hip and ended up in an inpatient rehab facility again. It was our good fortune that he was assigned to a physical therapist who was certified in NDT by Recovering Function of San Jose, California. Working with her he improved more quickly than I have ever seen before. In five weeks' time she began to correct several problems with his gait that no one had been able to correct in the past 3 1/2 years. I could literally see him improve with every session. When he came home he was actually walking better than before he broke his hip. Finally I could see proof that my belief in my husband's potential for recovery was not just wishful thinking on my part. Nor would it take as long as I originally thought it might. I have nothing but the highest praise for our therapist and Recovering Function. I encourage anyone who has hemiplegia due to stroke or brain damage to seek out and work with experienced NDT therapists, preferably trained by Recovering Function." (408) 268 - 3691

Recovering Function

"My Husband had a stroke in February last year. For months after the stroke he was still using a wheelchair to get around. We participated in our first course with Recovering Function in July. During the course, you told him that he had potential to use his paralyzed left side. You gave him so much hope! You showed him he had movement in his left side and taught him how to better use it when transferring from the wheelchair. In the Recovering Function course in August, you helped him walk using his left side. Since then, he has had NDT therapy on a consistent basis. I want you to know that this morning, he got up from his recliner and walked to the bathroom by himself using a cane. We had planned to build a wheelchair accessible house because of his disability. After we saw what he could do in your courses, we changed our plans. We are going to Canada this summer and the plans to build a wheelchair accessible house are on hold, hopefully indefinitely. My husband still wants to ride his bike and to golf again. Now we have no reason to tell him he can't." www.RecoveringFunction.com

Built upon the core principles of NDT the RPSFTM is a step by step framework of problem-solving strategies and manual cues for assessing potential and individualizing functional outcomes when implementing interventions for adult clients with hemiplegia

How does a master clinician individualize functional outcomes for adult clients with hemiplegia? The RPSFTM gives you a step by step framework of problem-solving strategies and manual cues for assessing your client's potential for recovery --- those with less ability, those with more ability, those having a recent onset, or those experiencing a more chronic recovery --- leading you from the initial interview to the achievement and documentation of reimbursable, discipline specific, individualized functional outcomes. Equally as important, the RPSFTM gives the team as a whole a common framework and vocabulary for coordinating activities, dialoguing about client potential and progress, and documenting individualized functional outcomes when implementing interventions for adult clients with hemiplegia.

"Cathy, after one day back at work, all I can say is "WOW!" Katherine and I returned to a nearly exclusive CV caseload, which is very uncommon in our facility, but A perfect timing! We were absolutely stunned at the results we were able to accomplish in an hour with each of our patients today using the techniques taught to us this past weekend! It was so exciting to see patients activating trunk muscles and triceps, etc., that were previously inactive and to see their faces light up with their new found muscle activity. We worked with one 89 year old woman today who has had an occipital stroke and is currently weaning off the ventilator. Upon initially sitting her at the edge of the bed she was in such posterior pelvic tilt that she couldn't reach forward at all. After 50 minutes, she was able to achieve an anterior pelvic tilt and weight shift forward sufficiently to reach her hairbrush when placed 25 inches away ­ UNBELIEV ABLE! Two other patients achieved a neutral pelvic tilt and went from max assist for balance at the edge of the bed to contact guard assist by the end of the treatment while maintaining weight bearing and tricep activation on the affected arm! You have made believers of us and we are so grateful for the new found knowledge and ability to individualize treatment plans for our patients and help maximize their potential during their time at our facility. Thank you, thank you, thank you!"

Recovering Function Tiered NDT Curriculum

Recovering Function's tiered Neuro-Developmental Treatment (NDT) curriculum allows you to develop skills at your own pace by progressively alternating each tier's course work with the application of learned skills on the job. In addition, by registering therapists for specific tiers, your rehabilitation team can achieve its target skills profile of introductory, advanced, and certified skills and establish a peer mentoring structure that is both effective and cost efficient. You can choose either pay as you go or package discount registration, and you can manage travel costs by choosing course locations from a list of nationwide offerings.

To support the demonstration of competency required for clinical ladders, occupational and physical therapists who have completed Tier-C and passed Recovering Function's certification examination for therapists will receive a certificate from Recovering Function bearing RPSFCCM in NDT (RPSF certified in Neuro-Developmental Treatment). Occupational and physical therapist assistants who have completed Tier-C and passed Recovering Function's certification examination for assistants will receive a certificate from Recovering Function bearing RPSFCACM in NDT (RPSF certified assistant in Neuro-Developmental Treatment).

Individuals

Rehabilitation teams applying for stroke certification can request a certificate from Recovering Function that authenticates the team's Tier-I, Tier-A, and Tier-C course completions for both therapists and therapist assistants. Recovering Function recommends a target team skills profile of at least 50/30/20 % (Tier-I, Tier-A, Tier-C) for both therapists and therapist assistants on rehabilitation teams working with adult clients with hemiplegia to maintain an effective peer mentoring structure.

Teams

Frequently Asked Questions

Q. How did Recovering Function's tiered NDT curriculum evolve? A. Recovering Function has offered a full range of NDT courses since 1991. Therapists and therapist assistants attending these courses requested tests of competency and credentialing from Recovering Function to help them demonstrate their competency for clinical ladders. Similarly, team leaders requested team credentialing from Recovering Function to help them demonstrate team competency when applying for stroke certification. They also requested a curriculum architecture that would allow them to achieve their team's target skills profile of introductory, advanced, and certified skills; to establish an effective and cost efficient peer mentoring structure; and to complete course work at their own pace. Recovering Function's tiered NDT curriculum addresses these requests. Q. Can I attend each part of each tier anytime/anywhere it is offered, and can I register and pay for each part as I go? A. Yes. Each part must be completed in prerequisite order. Each part has individual pricing. Q. Are there discounts if I register for multiple parts, or if my facility registers multiple therapists for the same parts? A. Yes. You must register for the parts at the same time, but may choose any course dates/locations; see www.RecoveringFunction.com for package discounts. Q. Must I complete both Part II's before taking Part III? A. No. Either Part II satisfies the prerequisite for Part III. Q. Which part results in RPSFC or RPSFCA? A. RPSFC and RPSFCA are specifically associated with the successful completion of Tier-C and its certification exam. Q. If I complete Recovering Function's NDTA approved course, can I also pursue RPSFC? A. Yes. The NDTA approved course satisfies the prerequisites for Part III (therapists who successfully complete Recovering Function's NDTA approved course receive a certificate from the NDTA. Tier-I, Tier-A, and Tier-C courses issue certificates from Recovering Function and are not affiliated with the NDTA. However, Tier-I, Tier-A, and Tier-C courses are taught by active, NDTA instructors and therefore also apply toward NDTA re-certification). Q. Is there a difference in expectations for therapists and therapist assistants when being evaluated for RPSFC and RPSFCA? A. Yes. Consistent with professional roles, therapists carry higher requirements for assessment. Q. After receiving my RPSFC or RPSFCA, how can I stay current? A. The instructors continuously update the curriculum by integrating new research from the neurosciences, bio-kinesiology, motor learning, and motor control into each course. Recovering Function recommends 30 hours of Tier course work each three years to stay current and to experience new client interventions.

tion course provides you with the opportunity to learn how to apply the RPSFTM during instructor-led interventions with adult clients with hemiplegia using the principles of NDT. You will learn how to examine, assess, and treat each client, progressing from the initial interview to the achievement of individualized functional outcomes. You will develop pretests and posttests that allow you to verify and document the new functional activity abilities acquired by each client as the result of skilled intervention. You will learn how to use features of a functionally rich environment to examine each client's functional activity abilities and functional activity limitations according to the FIM categories from an NDT perspective. You will learn how to use manual cues to assess each client's underlying impairments while accessing missing components of movement to promote the use of more effective movement strategies. You will develop discipline specific, skilled intervention goals and functional activities for each client, and use features of the environment to develop progressive ranges of challenge leading to those goals. You will use the RPSFTM to develop and document achievable, reimbursable, discipline specific, individualized functional outcomes for each client, as well as to individualize home exercise programs that will promote retention and carryover.

When you take a course sponsored by Recovering Function you will learn to achieve individualized functional outcomes for your adult clients with hemiplegia.

The instructors' successes using the NDT (Bobath) approach demonstrate that adult clients with hemiplegia have potential to use effective movement strategies to achieve individualized functional outcomes. They work diligently to incorporate new research from the neurosciences into each course so that you will better understand your clients' potential for recovery of function. Research in the neurosciences shows that changes in the CNS occur based on what is practiced (neuroplasticity). When your clients are given the opportunity to practice the use of effective movement strategies requiring the involved side, they have the opportunity to change the lesioned side of the brain and to achieve individualized functional outcomes. The instructors also continue to update the NDT (Bobath) approach by integrating information about advances in the field of bio-kinesiology. They will help you use bio-mechanical laws to identify the components of movement required for the use of effective movement strategies, and use manual cues for accessing them. When you access the components of movements required for effective movement strategies, your clients will achieve individualized functional outcomes. The instructors also continually integrate information about practice and feedback from the fields of motor control and motor learning. Practice and feedback are essential for promoting retention and carryover for the use of effective movement strategies for adult clients with hemiplegia. The instructors will provide you with examples of scheduling practice and using features of the environment to increase your clients' retention and carryover. The instructors will improve your problem-solving strategies for examination, assessment, and treatment. They will demonstrate strategies for examining your clients' life roles, support systems, and medical condition, as well as features of the environment for accurate determination of functional activity limitations. They will demonstrate strategies for assessing your clients' underlying impairments in each system by assessing their use of ineffective movement strategies and missing components of movement. They will demonstrate strategies for achieving skilled intervention goals and individualized functional outcomes for your clients via treatment activities implemented according to a logical progression of challenge, as well as strategies for improving retention and carryover. The instructors will demonstrate procedures for documenting the need for skilled intervention as well as the reimbursable, individualized functional outcomes achieved, in formats understandable by all reviewers including Medicare, managed care, and private insurers. As a result of the extensive "hands-on" practice and individual instructor feedback provided in these courses, you will know what to expect and what to do with your adult clients with hemiplegia. You will acquire practical, efficient problemsolving strategies, manual cues, and documentation procedures that you use can use immediately in any environment (including the acute hospital, rehab center, skilled nursing facility, outpatient clinic, and the home), getting results faster, and making your organization more cost effective. The instructors have dedicated their professional careers to the NDT/Bobath approach. They have experienced many rewards by providing their clients the opportunity to return to important aspects of their lives after the onset of hemiplegia. They want you to experience these rewards too!

Stella experienced the onset of hemiplegia on the left side one week before this treatment intervention. She is a wife, mother, and grandmother. Prior to her CVA, she was an independent homemaker. When sitting at the edge of the bed with her lower extremities aligned for active weight bearing, Stella is unable to control her trunk posture while using her left involved lower extremity for active weight bearing for the time it takes to apply lipstick. The instructor is working with Stella to realize her potential for the muscle activity of the lumbar and thoracic extensors, lumbar and thoracic flexors, and lateral lumbar and thoracic flexors required for control of a trunk posture both in sitting and standing. If Stella is able to control her trunk posture while using her left involved LE for active weight bearing in sitting, she will be able to achieve additional, individualized functional outcomes such as transferring in either direction.

Gary has hemiplegia on the left. He is a husband, father, and a high school teacher. The instructor is working with Gary to increase his independence for dressing which includes retrieval of objects. When moving from sitting to standing while using his right, less involved UE to retrieve his sweater, the instructor is facilitating his left involved LE and UE for active weight bearing, enabling him to reach a greater distance with his right, less involved UE. Increased independence, decreased burden of care, and increased safety are among the guidelines used by third parties for reimbursement. If Gary is able to control his trunk posture while using his left involved LE for active weight bearing when moving from sitting to standing, he will be able to achieve additional, individualized functional outcomes such as using his right, less involved UE to move the chair he was sitting on away from himself.

"The course helped me understand the importance of facilitating "correctly" and incorporating this with functional activities thus making more sense for the patients."

"I found most beneficial the general concepts of how to use facilitation techniques and the very useful applications demonstrated and practiced. The lab practice was extremely valuable."

"The instructor did a wonderful job of keeping the course interesting, useful and fun. I also appreciated that you listened to the participants and made no question a "dumb question". Also, I feel a little less burned out in a time that is becoming challenging for therapists."

Joe has hemiplegia on the left. He is a husband, father, and a real estate agent. The instructor is working with Joe to realize his potential for functional use of the involved side of the trunk and the involved left extremities. Joe is benefiting from practicing a more effective movement strategy in a more challenging movement. The instructor is using verbal instructions, a functional environment, and manual cues to facilitate standing while unweighting his right, less involved foot to don a shoe. If Joe is able to control his trunk posture while using his left involved LE for active weight bearing and un-weight his right foot in standing, he will be able to achieve additional, individualized functional outcomes such as moving to and controlling a mid-stance posture on the left required for gait.

"Very well organized and presented, great content and very applicable, great treatment ideas. I will treat patients much more effectively thanks to this course. I also have a very different view of the value of NDT compared to before. I will definitely take another course from you." "The course was interesting and fun and the instructors were very knowledgeable. I would certainly recommend this course to my colleagues."

"This was a great course which incorporated function instead of what is the OT role vs. PT role. I will definitely be attending further courses to increase my knowledge base to help facilitate those patients which I had previously felt had no potential." "I will look at our patients in a different light. I feel that I will be able to help those patients that we had given up on at our facility and be better able to serve our future CVA patients."
