Community mobility is vast in that it includes mass transportation, pedestrian travel, and driving, and is essential for engaging in vocational, social, and educational opportunities. The course is appropriate for occupational therapy practitioners practicing in educational settings and in driver rehabilitation. The practitioner in the educational setting will learn how to address community mobility in context of the individual education plan.
