range of potential treatments that the individual with the disorder may be receiving from the variety of health care professionals that may be involved, because you need to be aware of the treatments this person is receiving (e.g., surgery, drugs, psychological) when you plan your work with him/her (the next section). Remember that even if there is no cure for the disorder, there are treatments the person receives. Finally (and very importantly), a discussion of HOW I WOULD WORK WITH A PERSON WITH SUCH A DISORDER . In the "treatment" section you have discussed the full spectrum of the individual's treatment, one aspect of which will be your role as a therapist or an educator etc. In the " how I would work with a person with such a disorder" section you expand on your particular role in the treatment. For example, a future PT will focus on describing the PT treatment he/she will give, the future physicians assistants the office care such as drugs and referrals, the future educator the way the individual would be handled in the school. Do not write this section in first person, write it as a information sheet for others in your field to read and learn from. For examinations of a motor control issue: The investigation should start with a REVIEW OF THE CRITICAL ISSUES IN THE TOPIC. The viewpoints of multiple investigators must be included. There is no need to have a label for this section calling it the “Review”, it will be obvious.

Motor Control Assignment sample motor control issue paper on the course web site for an example. KEY ISSUES YET TO BE RESOLVED should be discussed. This section looks FORWARD at what needs to be figured out, based on what has been done. Finally (and very importantly), a discussion of HOW I WOULD USE THIS MOTOR CONTROL INFORMATION WHEN WORKING WITH A PERSON IN MY CAREER must be included. Do not write this final section in first person, write it as a information sheet for others in your field to read and learn from. For this form of the paper a major emphasis is on your REVIEW of current knowledge on your topic. Note in the grading sheet that the review is in three sections for grading because the review is heavily weighted. For both paper formats : You will be writing a report on your topic in a format that can be called a “fact sheet”, “brief report”, or “information brochure”. This format is a very popular in our field to communicate health and fitness information to the public. For example, you may be asked to produce a short handout to be available to clients on an issue of importance. For example, think of the information brochures you may have picked up in a doctor’s office or an exercise facility. It is necessary for you, as the professional in the field, to learn how to take lots of up-to-date information on a topic, and condense it and present it to a client, patient, etc. who does not have the time or desire to read a full length research report.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
