This course is recommended for PT academic faculty and clinicians who teach adult neurorehabilitation. A learning module for use in an entry-level DPT curriculum will be presented that introduces the PT student to locomotor training (LT) aimed at walking recovery for individuals with incomplete spinal cord injury (SCI). Both content and process will be emphasized. Thus, this module addresses what the students learn and specific experiences to optimize learning. Overall, faculty/clinicians attending this session will learn principles that guide locomotor training; understand its development and translation from basic science to a clinical intervention; and understand its context within rehabilitation interventions. Practical application will be introduced including training skills, progression, clinical decision-making, and outcome measures.
