Driving and Community Mobility:
Occupational Therapy Practitioner Roles in Driver Rehabilitation Programs (DRP)

Presenter Application

Please read entire registration carefully.

Welcome to the Driving & Community Mobility: Occupational Therapy Practitioner Roles in Driver Rehabilitation Programs registration. We are delighted that you have decided to dedicate your time to help expanding the knowledge and understanding of occupational therapy practitioners on their role with driving & community mobility and the driving specialist’s role on driver rehabilitation services.

Background: The US Department of Transportation has selected the American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) as a contractor under grant solicitation # DTNH2215R00027 Occupational Therapist Involvement in Older Driver Safety. The intent of the project is to “procure professional and technical services to conduct outreach to occupational therapists; provide updates to current occupational therapy resources including curricula for occupational therapy practitioners; develop new resources (including a toolkit); create awareness in the occupational therapy community; provide material distribution (including website); garner input from key stakeholders and evaluate these efforts.”

A portion of this 36 month grant has been set aside for this collaborative DRP project between ADED and AOTA. ADED was given the opportunity to identify project ideas to assist AOTA in achieving the goals of the grant funded project. Our shared mission of increasing the capacity of professionals to address the issues of the aging population and providing for safe and independent community mobility for all older adults makes this collaboration especially meaningful.

The primary presenter must be an occupational therapy practitioner with experience in the field of driver rehabilitation or have a co-presenter who is a driver rehabilitation specialist or certified driver rehabilitation specialist.
If you are a DRS or CDRS, but not an OT, and interested in providing this presentation, please reach out to CONTACT. We will do our best to help identify a primary OT presenter for you to partner with.
Please take a moment to complete the following about yourself, the OT primary presenter:
