Combining Motor Training and Cognition

Incorporating Motor Training with Cognition

The ideas in this section are presented to show how physical rehabilitation and cognitive rehabilitation can be simultaneously addressed during therapy sessions. At lower levels of cognitive functioning restoration of physical performance is paramount – but cognitive recovery must also be addressed.
This can be accomplished in part by having the person count exercises, cross off completed exercises on a checklist or by following a time schedule to carry out the exercise program for the session.
