Students will be required to apply knowledge and skills to the assessment of selected neurological disorders. New skills in the treatment of selected neurological disorders will be developed and specific assessment measures will be investigated, providing students with the tools required to competently assess and treat an individual with physical dysfunction as a result of neurological pathology.
