This will include discussion about questions to ask the client about the patient's history that are helpful when developing a thorough differential diagnosis list and descriptions and explanations for various "challenge tests" to augment and identify subtle neurologic abnormalities.

- *Expand your current fireld neurologic examination with more challenge/stimulation tests to make minor abnormalities more obvious
- *Learn how to better integrate the signalment, history, physical and neurologic examination findings in order to develop a differential list, diagnostic plan and therapeutic strategy moving forward
