Driver Rehabilitation

Your Team of Experts

All of our services are coordinated by an Occupational Therapist who is also a nationally Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist (CDRS). As experienced OTR and Driving Rehabilitation Specialists, your therapists can assist physicians with fitness-to-drive assessments and evaluate and recommend adaptive driving equipment as needed. We partner with the NMEDA (National Mobility Equipment Dealers Association), which serves the auto mobility industry, aiming to provide safe and reliable transportation solutions for enhanced accessibility. The organization’s vision is to ensure quality and safety in accessible transportation.

We Adapt to Your Needs

A driving evaluation and rehabilitation program can help if you or a loved one has conditions such as:

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Vision Impairments
  • Alzheimer’s/Dementia
  • Conditions Associated with Aging
  • Neurological Deficits 
  • Vision Impairment

Helping You Stay Mobile and Independent

We understand that everyone’s needs are different, and when it comes to driver rehabilitation, there is no one-size-fits-all solution. We adapt our vehicle to your needs so you benefit from the most personalized treatment. Our driving skills evaluation is designed to plan, develop, coordinate, and implement driving services for people with disabilities or with one or more medical conditions affecting safe driving.
