Unless otherwise specified, assessments are administered and scored by standardized BE’s.

1Randomization occurs after baseline and between 14–106 days post stroke; thus participant and all study personnel are blinded to treatment group assignment at the baseline evaluation.

2Post-Intervention Evaluation occurs between 16–20 weeks post-randomization.

36-month Post-Randomization Evaluation occurs between 24–28 weeks post-randomization.

412-month Post-Randomization Evaluation occurs between 50–64 weeks post-randomization.

5Items at given time points are measured by local site team personnel and not by BE’s.
