About CSRS™

In collaboration with the National Stroke Association, we have developed the field’s only stroke certification program for therapists: the “Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist” (CSRS™).

The CSRS™ is a four-tiered, seminar-based, stroke education program that is designed for licensed physical and occupational therapists of all experience levels. Each, live CSRS™ seminar offers 6.5 hours content and continuing education units (required for therapist licensure in most states). The four-seminar series culminates in an online certification exam administered via a secure website. Successful test completion with a score of 80% or above grants the CSRS™ certification. CSRS™-certified therapists may list the initials “CSRS” behind their professional credentials.

This course is now full. It is rare that we receive cancellations—and if we do, it is very few slots. If you'd like to be put on a waiting list for this course, contact our business administrator and write "Add me to the Charleston, SC waiting list" in the subject line.

Please feel free to also explore one of our other upcoming courses.

Would You Like a CSRS™ T-Shirt With That?

Made of a canvas blend (really nice, soft, t-shirts), our distressed-gray T-shirts proudly display the CSRS logo on the front, in Winter Blue, with the words, “Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist”™ in black.

On the back appear the words “Eat, Sleep, Treat, Repeat”™ in distressed Winter Blue, overlaid onto a vintage brain rendering. Just below the brain are the words “Physical Therapy/Occupational Therapy”  in black. 

S, M, L, and XL sizes are available, while supplies last. Short-sleeved shirts only available at this time. When you purchase through PayPal, $5.00 S/H will automatically be added to the price. For Ohio-based customers, an additional 7.5% tax is added (per state law – we wouldn’t do this stuff by choice, would we?!)

“Certified Stroke Rehabilitation Specialist,”™ “CSRS,”™ and “Eat, Sleep, Treat, Repeat”™ are trademarks of Neurorecovery Unlimited, LLC and may not be used without express written permission.
