I understand this website is a great source of information from many professionals within the industry. However, when asking specific questions regarding a client (ie. What exercises should I do?) it is impossible to answer. We cannot see your client nor have we performed any type of assessment on them. Therefore, not only is difficult to answer it is potentially wrongful.
1) Propose the difficulty and ask where to refer to.
2) Ask where to find out more information regarding specifics (assessment, programming, etc.)
3) Take advantage of resources (IDEA has much to offer) and become more familiarized before working with potential clients.
Would love to hear opinions.
I think you are right in many ways, but also hope you’ll consider the phrase that begins with “It takes a village…” Though I agree we all could offer much more specific answers if we had much more specific information, I think sometimes having a really open-ended questions can get a much more diverse set of answers which allows the person questioning to decide what direction seems to make sense in their particular situation.
Hopefully though it may not seem as helpful to some of us, to that person, you may have opened their eyes to a brand new perspective!
