Feasibility & Proof of Concept for an Individualized Community Mobility Intervention
Presenter: Beth Pfeiffer, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, BCP
 
Individuals with intellectual or developmental disabilities have unmet transportation needs, which limits their community mobility. Access to transportation is linked to community participation and independence in adult outcomes. The purpose of this study was to examine the implementation feasibility of Community Mobility Plans, an individualized OT intervention.
 
Following this presentation, the practitioner will be able to:
•   Describe the feasibility and proof of concept of an individualized OT intervention, Community Mobility Plans (CMP), to improve community mobility for adolescents and young adults with intellectual and developmental disabilities.
•    Identify the potential outcomes of CMP in research and clinical practice.
 
Initial Evaluation of a Public Transportation Intervention Program for Individuals With Developmental Disabilities (DD)
Presenters: Beth Pfeiffer, PhD, OTR/L, FAOTA, BCP; Katherine Bevans, PhD
 
People with DD often face transportation challenges that impede community participation. The purpose of this study was to examine the impact of a comprehensive intervention program on the travel skills of individuals with DD to increase community mobility.
 
Following this presentation, the practitioner will be able to:
•   Describe the impact of a comprehensive intervention program on the public transportation travel skills of individuals with DD and the effect of diagnosis on outcomes.
•   List the key components of a comprehensive intervention program targeting travel skills for public transportation.
