Once we determine the neuromuscular impairments that students have as they relate to their ability to perform work related tasks, we need to create interventions, many of them strength based, to implement as programming. Because I have not worked in sports medicine PT, I have had to go back and review intervention that may be appropriate. I found this PT on Twitter, John Rusin, and I do think I love him...the video and the detailed biomechanical explanations, all help me to increase my knowledge and frame my intervention programs.
In a recent post he discusses what movements are foundational necessary for all humans: squatting, lift and carry, lunging, pushing and pulling. Much of what he discusses regarding functional movement applies, in a scaled way, to physical activity recommendations for people with disabilities. If you are struggling for interventions in your Fit4Work programming for youth with disabilities, consider reviewing this blogpost to understand them, and use what applies to programming for the students you are working with.
