With Portuguese physiotherapist Josefa Domingos and American speech language pathologist, John M Dean.
For the past 7 years of collaboration, we have been developing interdisciplinary dual task exercise programs that we provide to people living with Parkinson’s around the world. We have now compiled all of these concepts and activities into an educational program for healthcare and exercise providers.
Our training program is focused on integrating our approach among all 3 rehab disciplines, physical, occupational and speech therapy as well as exercise professionals such as athletic trainers and exercise physiologists.
This is not a branded approach or a proprietary method. We provide a framework that includes understanding why dual-task deficits are present in individuals with Parkinson’s and how to introduce activities that can address these issues.
We leave it up to clinicians and exercise professionals to use their knowledge, experience, and creativity to incorporate those concepts into their practice.
