ADED Specialized Instructor Badge

Part of ADED's

Credentialing Program



The goal of this badge is to equip its earners with the knowledge necessary to provide driver training to special populations. These populations may include but are not limited to: new or seasoned drivers with physical disabilities requiring adaptive equipment to drive, drivers with cognitive or perceptual difficulties, drivers with autism spectrum disorder, older drivers, drivers with anxiety disorder, and drivers with low vision.

Badges are a part of ADED’s Educational Roadmap. Badges, micro-credentials, and the CDRS® certification are all credentials available to those on the professional journey towards excellence in driver rehabilitation. These credentials are earned, endorsed by ADED, and verifiable. An ADED-issued badge is an accolade that attests to qualifications, competencies, and knowledge or skill attainment within a relatively small scope of the practice of driver rehabilitation.

Once a badge has been awarded, the specialist will receive a digital icon that recognizes the credential earned. This is an outward symbol of skills, abilities, and accomplishments. These icons can be shared digitally in email signatures, business cards, web pages, on social media, and resumes. Anywhere the badge holder wants to proudly promote their specialized skills. Earning a badge signifies to colleagues, employers, referral sources, and the public a comment to excellence in the field of driver rehabilitation. Badges may be stackable or part of a sequence that can be accumulated over time.
