Dual Task Education Program
Portuguese physiotherapist Josefa Domingos and speech language pathologist, John M Dean.

Over nearly 7 years of collaboration, we have developed interdisciplinary dual task exercise programs that we provide to people living with Parkinson’s around the world.

Now we have compiled all of these concepts into an educational program for 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.

Our approach is to train participants in the science behind and the concepts of dual task/multitask interventions. We show how to realize better carryover and learning by the individual with Parkinson’s due to the reinforcement of concepts at each session, regardless of the discipline.

This is not a branded approach or a proprietary method, we simply provide a framework that includes understanding why dual task deficits are present in individuals with Parkinson’s and how to introduce activities that can ameliorate these issues.

After that, it’s up to clinicians and exercise professionals to use their knowledge and experience to incorporate those concepts into their practice.
