Course Description

Addresses the critical issue of community mobility skill development for youth with diagnoses that challenge cognitive and social skills, such as autism spectrum and attention deficit disorder. 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. The occupational therapy practitioner practicing in driver rehabilitation will gain understanding into the impact of these diagnoses on community mobility skills and be better able to identify when a student is ready for driving.

Course Highlights

  • Clarifies role of community mobility in the Individual Education Plan.
  • Review of the diagnoses and community mobility challenges that youth with a variety of diagnoses often experience.
  • Screening tools to identify deficiencies in community mobility before transitioning out of school.
  • Concepts in therapeutic activities and methods to help practitioners develop student community mobility skills.
