What should ot evaluation cover in someone with basal ganglia stroke?

OT evaluation. Ot evaluation should cover areas involving fine motor controls such as holding and using your toothbrush, eating utensils, a pen, etc. Furthermore, if the stroke left any sensory problems such as unusual tactile sensations, intolerance of tastes, textures, sensation, sound - basically anything sensory - these should be evaluated by the ot as well. Best of luck to you.
Very important. An occupational therapist is indeed an integral part of a rehabilitation team, and will help with assistive devices, coping skills, use of impaired limbs, and the reacquisition of activites of daily living.
