This text-based course is a transcript of the webinar, Power Wheelchair Assessment: Mobility Training as a Part of the School Day, presented by Michelle L. Lange, OTR, ABDA, ATP/SMS.
Michelle Lange: Today, we will talk about pre-mobility training. These are techniques used to develop skills before a power wheelchair is recommended. We will also talk about mobility training, which usually occurs after a new power wheelchair arrives and can help optimize driving for the client. Our emphasis today is on children and particularly those in school. A lot of this training can happen within the school day. If you do not work in a school setting, hopefully this information will be applicable to other settings as well. We are going to use some case studies at the end of the webinar to help illustrate some of the salient points.
As a result of this continuing education activity, participants will be able to:
- List 3 mobility training strategies for improving driving accuracy in the context of the school day.
- List 3 mobility training strategies for improving judgment in the context of the school day.
- List 3 mobility training strategies for improving problem solving in the context of the school day.
