Covering Northern California and the Greater Bay
We work to keep you on the road and safely behind the wheel.
The ability to drive plays an important part in a
person's overall independence. The skills used to safely operate a motor vehicle
may be impaired due to an injury, illness, or a congenital disability. Everyday
tasks of going to the grocery store, doctor's office, or participating in
social activities become a major obstacle for someone who cannot drive. For
persons with physical, cognitive or visual impairments, the ability to regain
driving is critical to leading an independent lifestyle.
Driver Rehabilitation Services generally include a
complete clinical assessment of a person’s visual, perceptual, cognitive,
physical and behavioral abilities as it relates to safe and independent driving
due to aging, an illness or an injury. This assessment is conducted by a
licensed Occupational Therapist who is also a Certified Driver Rehabilitation
Specialist. Following the clinical evaluation, the behind-the-wheel assessment
is conducted with the evaluating therapist to assess actual skill performance
while operating a motor vehicle and making safe and independent driving decisions.
Services provided are rooted in the medical model; this is not a driving school.
