A Great Way to Gain Hands-on Experience!

Review by Megan, OT DRS

"Take the Wheel was instrumental in my ability to become an OT Driver Rehab Specialist! With this course, I was able to develop the skills, knowledge, resources, & confidence needed to start taking clients on in-car driving assessments ... Take the Wheel was a great way to get hands-on experience and mentoring! Without this course, I would not have been able to establish my private practice with the amount of success I have had."
