In today’s society, the ability to drive is a crucial component of a person's independence. However, driving often seems an unattainable goal for those who are limited by illness, injury, psychological or the physiological changes associated with aging. UofL Health - Frazier Rehab Institute's comprehensive Driver Education and Training Program helps these individuals gain back their independence in driving.
Within the program, occupational therapy professionals, certified as driver rehab specialists, work closely with physicians to review the participants medical and driving history, perform a pre-driving and vehicle evaluation, behind-the-wheel evaluation and, if necessary, training and equipment recommendations. All participants are given every opportunity to maximize their driving potential before completing the program.
