Short Bio:

Hortensia Gimeno is a clinical academic occupational therapist. She works as associate director of research for therapies at Barts Health NHS Trust and has an honorary senior lecturer position at Queen Mary University London. She specialized in childhood-onset movement disorders with more than 20 years of clinical experience and with a doctorate in paediatric neuro-rehabilitation from King’s College London. Hortensia is a member of various research strategic boards representing occupational therapy and more broadly applied health research. These include the research and development board from the Royal College of Occupational Therapy, the research strategy group from the British Academy of Childhood Disability, and the expert international group for dystonia in cerebral palsy clinical guidelines. Hortensia used single case experimental design as the methodology for two studies during her PhD and this work was published, in part, in high impact factor journals such as ‘Neurology’. The use of this particular methodology enabled for two systematic evaluations of a rehabilitation intervention in childhood-onset hyperkinetic movement disorders. These are the first rehabilitation studies internationally available for this population.
