Abstract

 Dual-task Training (DTT) is an activity in which a person performs two attentional demanding tasks simultaneously. Many researchers have demonstrated the effectiveness of DTT in rehabilitation of persons with Parkinson’s disease (PD), traumatic brain injury and other neurological conditions among adult populations. But DTT has not been explored in children with and without disabilities in the post World War Era (WWE). Hence, we present here the brief review on the history of DTT from the searched online database such as Google Scholar, OvidSP, Cochrane review, PubMed and PEDro from 1945 to 2010. This review will be a short history of DDT in post WWE. 

Keywords: Cognitive Rehabilitation; Dual-Task; Postural Task; Review; Theory.
