    Perfect entry level workshop for any occupational therapy practitioner looking to address driving & enter the field of driver rehabilitation.

Course Description

This dynamic, interactive course, is for the OT practitioner preparing to expand into the field of driving rehabilitation. Take the Wheel includes online preparation work, plus 3 days of hands-on training, with experienced occupational therapy driver rehabilitation specialists, in a driving rehabilitation vehicle. This course is one of a kind & a must for any occupational therapy practitioner preparing to participate in behind-the-wheel driving evaluations & treatment. Be prepared for the field of driver rehabilitation! Practice the skills you have gained from our Part 1 In the Clinic: Building Blocks Courses, before getting into the car with a patient! Benefit from online coursework to maximize your time in the rehab vehicle. Gain valuable hands-on time by practicing as the driver rehabilitation specialist in the passenger seat, as the driver with adaptive equipment, and as an observer.

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."

Upcoming Workshop is ORWIGSBURG November 5-7, 2020 $3,800
