CEU Coure Description

Transportation as a whole is a vital way for individuals to access and explore their environment. Transit is a necessary prerequisite for most people to engage in leisure activities, socialize with others, fulfill work and volunteer roles, and maintain their health. While there are several methods of public transportation including buses and trains, driving a vehicle is personally meaningful to many individuals. This personal connection is due in part to the independence and convenience it affords a person and those around them. For this reason, driving is considered an occupation high on the list of priorities for many individuals with disabilities. Occupational therapists are one of several professionals who are well-poised to provide habilitative and rehabilitative services focused on driving. By helping individuals with disabilities to develop or improve their driving skills, therapists can enhance a person’s quality of life, health management skills, community integration, independence, and much more.

CEU Course Objectives

  1. Identify the health concerns and conditions that may cause difficulty with safe driving.
  2. Articulate the role an occupational therapist can play in remediating driving-related deficits and in what settings this intervention may take place.
  3. Distinguish the different types of driving interventions and for what purpose each of them may be used.
  4. Highlight some of the related roles an occupational therapist may have in driving rehabilitation, including how this pertains to alternative methods of transportation and coordinating other services.
