Neurological Rehabilitation

Level 1A

Starting at: $350.00

Montreal January 30, 2021


This course is given in class, but can be followed via webcast if you cannot travel to Montreal. If the confinement is extended again, all participants will take the course via webcast.

Level 1A: Early bird rate at $297.50 until December 30, 2020. Regular rate: $350

Combo Level 1 and 2: Early bird rate at $765 until December 30, 2020. Regular rate: $900

People presenting with neurological conditions are present throughout all practices: in rehabilitation, in hospitals, in private centers, and in residential or home support settings. The manifestations of their condition can be seen at any stage of life, and therefore cover the fields of pediatrics, adult neurology, and geriatrics. Whether you meet with these people to rehabilitate the patients with this manifestations directly or whether you are working with them for another reason (general fitness or rehabilitation of an orthopedic problem), the different manifestations of their condition will certainly affect your approach.

This Level 1 training is intended for rehabilitation professionals working in neurology in a public or private setting who want to deepen their knowledge in neuropathology. Participants will be able to develop their skills in intervening with an adult clientele presenting with a neurological, degenerative or traumatic condition (e.g., stroke, spinal cord injury, Parkinson’s disease, multiple sclerosis).

On this day, the group will be separated as follows:

Kinesiologists and PTR (Joanie Roberge and Charlotte Pion)

Physiotherapists and occupational therapists (Maureen Mac Mahon)

It is possible to obtain a Neuro-Academic Certification by completing Level 1 (A or B) and Level 2. See the description of Level 1B and Level 2. Once you have completed your certification, you will be able to continue your path towards the various Level 3 courses offered.

Course Outline Level 1A:

Theoretical part:

  • Neurophysiology of the central nervous system
  • Pyramidal attacks (and its manifestations)
  • Extrapyramidal damage (and its manifestations)
  • Neuroplasticity
  • Motor learning
  • Evidence-based review of best practices

Clinical part and group reflection objectives:

  • To find and understand the limitations that each presented pathology creates for your client/patient presenting with a neurological condition: what are the possible complications of rehabilitation intervention?
  • To set up/reflect on possible interventions for clients presenting with neurological conditions.
  • To demonstrate, with a client, various techniques/approaches according to a specific case.
  • To present a “Workshop” of techniques (transfers, MS mobilizations, postural control).

The Neuro-Academic Certification is presented in collaboration with Neuro-Concept:

Using evidence-based data, Neuro-Concept has been applying efficient practices in the rehabilitation and re-education of neurological patients for several years. The approaches used combine conventional therapies with technical and technological innovations. All health professionals of the training academy are qualified and specialized in neurorehabilitation, in addition to being involved in research and teaching at the academic level. They have received advanced training that allows them to use a variety of approaches to meet the specific needs of people presenting with neurological disorders.


  1. Differentiate between degenerative and traumatic central nervous system disorders;
  2. Target the physical and/or perceptual-cognitive limitations caused by a given neurological condition;
  3. Develop intervention approaches and techniques to promote the recovery of function according to the client’s potential and the missions of the profession;
  4. Develop strategies to compensate for these limitations during physical activity, according to the specific missions of the profession;
  5. Know the risk factors (precautions and contraindications) of this clientele in relation to physical activity;
  6. Understand the mechanism of neuroplasticity;
  7. Understand the concept of motor learning;
  8. Apply the concepts of motor learning during physical activity, according to the specific missions of the profession;
  9. Differentiate between muscle tone disorders, their manifestations, and the resulting limitations in movement;
  10. Apply strategies to reduce the negative impact of abnormal muscle tone during physical activity;
  11. Know several physical exercises adapted to a clientele presenting with neurological conditions.
