We've got a secret...

We get stuck too 

We've been there, and periodically we find ourselves there again - We get stuck trying to solve that tough case. We get in ruts where we feel like we are going nowhere with our client. We definitely have found ourselves using familiar tools that work most of the time, but have struggled to help that one person really succeed. We've gone to many continuing education courses trying to find that new skill for our toolbox that we must be missing. We've struggled to figure out how to clinically apply concepts that are way too theoretical.

We bet you're probably here because know there is something more to neurorehab than just learning a new technique. You want to learn that secret sauce that will really make the difference in your outcomes.

The secret to moving forward? 
...It's about going deeper.

You have to get in there with your client and understand who they are as a person. It's about using your soft skills to tackle the hard things that keep both you and your client from moving to the next level.


This course is only for people who


✔ Want to help their clients conquer fear and anxiety

✔ Want to motivate their clients OPTIMALLY


✔ Are willing to think outside the box 

✔ Are psyched to learn how to use their soft skills to enhance sensory, motor, and cognitive interventions

✔  Are eager to make sessions way more personalized and innovative on the fly

✔ Are lovers of #neuronuggets and #studerisms


By the end of this course you will

Engage clients in their programs like never before through harnessing attention and motivation

Reduce client anxiety through innovative analogies and education

Have confidence to innovate on the spot and adapt your programs quickly

Master dual task choice and dosing for neurologic disorders

Have better (and more meaningful!) client outcomes

Improve client self efficacy and autonomy in recovery

Form effective treatment interventions for people with MCI, depression, apathy, impulse control, dual task intolerance, impaired awareness and more!

Learning with Mike Studer

"This course helped to validate the importance of establishing a therapeutic relationship/alliance with each patient and that it's not only okay, but essential to take the time necessary to do so. Mike was able to take what I've always thought of as "the art of PT (or patient care)" and demonstrate evidence and research to showcase its importance and effectiveness."

Mike Studer,PT,MHS,NCS,CEEAA,CWT,CSST received his physical therapy degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia in 1991. He received his post-professional MHS degree in physical therapy with neurologic emphasis from the University of Indianapolis.

He is a full-time treating therapist at and founder of Northwest Rehabilitation Associates, in Oregon. Mr.Studer has presented courses and published articles on neurologic and geriatric rehabilitation since 1995 and has authored and co-authored over 30 articles on topics of neurology and geriatrics, as well as several book chapters on stroke, cognition, PD, and preventative care as well.

"There are so many ways! Definitely making me re-think how I approach my initial evaluation with a patient, as that can make such an impact on potential outcomes. Made me realize how our words and cueing can make a significant difference."
"I think it helped me appreciate some of the behavioral economic strategies I already do and appreciate and helps me think about how to adapt some more changes in patients."
"Definitely appreciated your emphasis on individualizing to the client's needs, listening, and using the client's vernacular to help them see that you're listening and taking in what they say. I really like your input regarding behavioural economics and how using these more emphasizes the brain science behind the change we're trying to help the client make."
