Summary:

Apraxia is a disorder of skilled and purposeful movement that occurs with neurological damage or disorders affecting the praxis system. People with limb apraxia often have severe functional deficits that impede everyday task performance and increase dependence on caregivers. Historically, apraxia has been a poorly understood disorder with much debate surrounding its definition and subtypes. Recent literature supports two types of limb apraxia in adults: ideational and ideomotor. Although research studies on rehabilitative methods are scarce, current views support occupation-based assessment and intervention.

Objectives:

The goal of this apraxia continuing education program is to review the causes and types of limb apraxia, examine how apraxia affects everyday function and understand current evidence-based methods for assessment and treatment of apraxia. After reviewing the information presented in this program, you will be able to:
  • Differentiate between types of limb apraxia
  • Describe the effect of apraxia on occupational performance
  • Identify functional approaches for the assessment of apraxia
  • Develop occupation-based treatments for patients with apraxia
