Course material

UNVEILING PERCEPTION: Physiotherapy’s Vital Role in Addressing Perceptual Disorders – with Srishti Banerjee.

Course Objectives for Physiotherapy for Perceptual Disorders:

1. Understand the physiological and neurological basis of perceptual disorders, including sensory processing deficits and cognitive impairments.
2. Identify and assess perceptual disorders through comprehensive evaluation techniques, including standardized assessment tools and clinical observation.
3. Develop individualized treatment plans tailored to the specific needs and goals of patients with perceptual disorders, considering their functional limitations and personal preferences.
4. Implement evidence-based physiotherapy interventions to address perceptual deficits, such as sensory integration therapy, vestibular rehabilitation, proprioceptive training, and visual-spatial exercises.
5. Enhance sensory processing and integration skills through structured therapeutic activities aimed at improving sensory discrimination, modulation, and organization.
6. Foster cognitive rehabilitation strategies to address deficits in attention, memory, executive function, and problem-solving abilities associated with perceptual disorders.
7. Incorporate environmental modifications and assistive technologies to optimize functional independence and participation in daily activities for individuals with perceptual impairments.
8. Collaborate with interdisciplinary healthcare professionals, including occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and neuropsychologists, to provide comprehensive care and support for patients with perceptual disorders.
9. Evaluate treatment outcomes through objective measures and patient-reported outcomes to monitor progress and adjust intervention strategies as needed.
10. Provide education and support to patients, families, and caregivers regarding strategies for managing perceptual challenges and promoting long-term recovery and adaptation.
11. Demonstrate professionalism, empathy, and cultural competence in working with diverse populations affected by perceptual disorders, respecting their autonomy and dignity throughout the rehabilitation process.
12. Stay updated on current research and advancements in the field of physiotherapy for perceptual disorders, engaging in continuous professional development to enhance clinical practice and improve patient outcomes.
Course Program for Physiotherapy for Perceptual Disorders:

COURSE PROGRAMME for the 6-hour module 1&2 course on Physiotherapy for Perceptual Disorders:

MODULE 1
Hour 1: Introduction and Overview
– Introduction to Perceptual Disorders
– Overview of definitions, classifications, and prevalence
– Neuroanatomy and neurophysiology related to sensory processing and perception

Hour 2: Etiologies and Assessment
– Exploration of common etiologies and neurological conditions affecting perception
– Assessment techniques for sensory processing, cognitive function, and perceptual abilities
– Utilization of standardized assessment tools and clinical observation in identifying perceptual deficits

Hour 3: Comprehensive Evaluation Techniques
– Further exploration of comprehensive evaluation techniques specific to perceptual disorders

– Interactive discussion on interpreting assessment findings and formulating treatment plans

MODULE 2
Hour 4: Sensory Processing Interventions
– Overview of sensory integration therapy: principles, techniques, and applications in perceptual disorders
– Proprioceptive training methods and tactile stimulation techniques tailored to address perceptual deficits
– Environmental modifications and assistive technologies to enhance sensory processing

Hour 5: Cognitive Rehabilitation Strategies
– Understanding cognitive impairments associated with perceptual disorders, including attention, memory, and problem-solving deficits
– Cognitive rehabilitation approaches targeting specific cognitive functions relevant to perceptual rehabilitation
– Integration of cognitive tasks into functional activities and therapeutic exercises

Hour 6: Functional Training and Interdisciplinary Collaboration
– Application of sensory-motor integration exercises in functional tasks and activities of daily living
– Adaptive strategies and compensatory techniques for managing perceptual challenges in real-world settings
– Role of physiotherapists within interdisciplinary teams in managing perceptual disorders
– Collaboration with occupational therapists, speech-language pathologists, and neuropsychologists for holistic patient care

This course program combines theoretical knowledge with practical skills training and clinical application to equip physiotherapists with the necessary expertise to effectively evaluate, treat, and support individuals with perceptual disorders.

Target Audience:
This course is designed for physiotherapists, occupational therapists, rehabilitation nurses, and other healthcare professionals involved in stroke rehabilitation. It is also suitable for students and researchers interested in the assessment and management of cognitive and perceptual deficits in stroke survivors.

Conclusion:
This 6-hour course equips healthcare professionals with the knowledge, skills, and strategies needed to effectively assess and manage cognitive and perceptual deficits in stroke survivors. By understanding the physiology of perception, prevalence of perceptual disorders in stroke, types of perceptual deficits, and appropriate examination and management techniques, healthcare professionals can enhance treatment outcomes and improve the quality of life for stroke survivors. Join us in advancing stroke rehabilitation through comprehensive assessment and management of cognitive and perceptual deficits.

Take home message
The take-home message for physiotherapy in perceptual disorders is the importance of comprehensive assessment, individualized treatment planning, and evidence-based interventions to improve sensory processing, cognitive function, and overall functional independence. By integrating a multidisciplinary approach, fostering collaboration among healthcare professionals, and empowering patients and caregivers with education and support, physiotherapists can play a crucial role in promoting recovery, adaptation, and quality of life for individuals affected by perceptual disorders.
