This program has been designed to provide you with the necessary tools and techniques to help you gain or increase strength, dexterity (skill and ability), and coordination in your non-dominant hand. In other words, if you are right-handed, you’ll learn to function with your left hand, and if you are left-handed, you’ll learn to function with your right hand.
NDHT trains the non-injured hand and the neuropathways of the brain, while physiotherapy trains the injured hand to regain strength and functionality.
Through this training, you’ll be able to more effectively use your non-dominant hand at school, at home, and at work. You’ll be able to print and write on forms and other documentation, operate telephones and fax machines, and perform daily tasks, all using your non-dominant hand
NDHT is usually integrated with another program. As a standalone program, the program is 1-hour per day plus homework activities.
