Many opportunities exist for occupational therapists to play an active, professional role in serving older adults and others in need of driving evaluation and intervention and community mobility services. Older adults are the fastest growing segment of our population, and driving will play an increasingly important role in enabling them to stay connected to their communities.
AOTA's Older Driver microsite offers educational opportunities for occupational therapy practitioners to expand their skills in this exciting practice area and to build on existing skills in older driver safety and community mobility.
These resources include information on driving rehabilitation specialty certifications for occupational therapy practitioners, and direct access to continuing education courses such as seminars or online courses.
