Webinar Information: 

This workshop addresses empirically based methods for evaluating the cognitive, visual, visual perceptual, behavioral and executive functions which are required to drive. These capacities are often not evident to the outside observer or to the driver. We will address symptoms and diagnoses that raise special concerns for driving. After a presentation of some of the major resources and test protocols, we will focus on their use in transitioning to behind-the-wheel assessment and training with a focus on reviewing clinical deficits effects on performance and appropriate training approaches for clients. The workshop will offer best practices in documentations and communication with the client and other professionals. The workshop will also review strategies for intervention, re-evaluation and address when training may be implemented/recommended or discontinued.


Learning Objectives:
1. Recognize hidden cognitive, perceptual and behavioral deficits related to neurological pathology that may impact the driving task.
2. Identify several evidence-based off-road clinical procedures to assess these deficits.
3. Develop skills to analyze the results of a clinical assessment in relation to potential difficulties that may arise during assessment behind the wheel and, ultimately, in driving.
4. Develop skills to interpret how clinical deficit may affect driving performance and identify factors that will determine client’s potential for training.
5. Develop skills for writing an effective plan of care, documenting reportable outcomes to client, family, physicians and state agencies and how best to communicate outcomes to clients, funding agencies and mobility dealers.
6. Understand BTW training techniques that may address cognitive perceptual difficulties and recognize training approaches that meet the needs of all level clients.
7. Recognize potential outcomes of training and use of objective re-assessment to ensure progression of skill development while identifying when clients may be discharged or if training should be terminated.
8. Develop skills for intervention planning for clients with cognitive perceptual or physical difficulties.
