A. Specific Aims:
1. There is one specific aim of this study. The aim is to evaluate the effectiveness of early standardized task-specific training (ESTT) in persons with acute stroke.
1. It is our hypothesis that subjects who receive ESTT will walk faster and more symmetrically than published reports of gait outcomes in persons with stroke.

|Official Title:||Evaluation of Early Standardized Task-Specific Training (ESTT) in Persons With Acute Stroke|
|Study Start Date :||August 2012|

Experimental: early standardized task training
Persons in the experimental group will receive ESTT (early standardized task specific training) for gait treatment after stroke.
Other: Early standardized task training
Early standardized task training is a treatment approach using treadmill training applied very early after stroke onset.
Other Name: ESTT
- Change in Walking Velocity From Initial Assessment to Completion of Study at 6 Months Post Enrollment [ Time Frame: This will be done at the time of discharge from inpatient rehabilitation (the initial assessment point of the study) and at 6-months post enrollment. ]Computerized gait analysis is done by a mat system (GAITRite) that electronically calculates the velocity.
- Change in Score on Stroke Rehabilitation Assessment of Movement (STREAM) Test From Initial Assessment to Discharge From Study. [ Time Frame: This test will be done at the initiation of the protocol (initial assessment) and at 6 months post enrollment ]The Stroke Rehabilitation Assessment of Movement (STREAM) is a test of motor recovery after stroke. There are 3 subsections of the test, an upper extremity section, a lower extremity section and a mobility section. Each section is scored independently and is normed to 100 points. Each of the 3 sections is then combined into a total overall function score which is also normed to 100. Therefore, a score of 100 represents full recovery whereas a score of 50 represents about 50% recovery from the stroke.
- Change in 6-Minute Walk Test Distance From Time of Discharge From Rehabilitation (Initial Assessment) to 6 Months Post Enrollment [ Time Frame: This test will be done at the initiation of the protocol (initial assessment) and at 6 months post enrollment ]The 6-Minute Walk Test is a test of walking endurance and walking velocity.
