    Traditional Sensorimotor Approach to Intervention


    • Trace the flow of information in the central and peripheral nervous systems that leads to purposeful movement
    • Define the sensorimotor system, its locus in the brain, and its function during motor performance
    • List the structures that constitute the higher, middle, and lower levels of the central nervous system components for movement
    • Name the four traditional sensorimotor approaches to intervention and the theorist responsible for each
    • Name the two models of motor control that form the basis for the sensorimotor approaches to treatment
    • Briefly describe each of the four traditional sensorimotor approaches to intervention; compare and contrast their similarities and their differences
    • Define proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and how this approach facilitates adaptive responses that are performed in daily occupations
    • Outline and describe the principles of proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation and how to apply them to enhance client performance
    • Describe the influence of sensory input on motor learning
    • Use the proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation evaluation to determine factors limiting clients ’ participation in their occupation
    • Identify theoretic foundations of neurodevelopmental treatment, as well as current principles of evaluation and intervention
    • Identify management strategies associated with neurodevelopmental treatment intervention and treatment techniques
    • Integrate neurodevelopmental treatment within an occupation-centered and client-centered approach to evaluation and intervention
    • Discuss the relationship between evidence-based practice and neurodevelopmental treatment, and discuss types of evidence available to support the use of neurodevelopmental treatment in occupational therapy
