Evaluating and Writing an Effective Home Modification Evaluation Report: The Do’s and Don’ts


Course Description

Lacking an "industry standard" that governs home evalution modification reports, therapists find that they are generally on their own when faced with the task of creating one. Neither are they equipped on techniques on how to make the process less of a challenge for the evaluator and the patient. Various factors that can influence a patient's report include the evaluator’s experience, the evaluation process of evaluating agency, or the availability of product resources once the evaluation is complete.

This course provides therapists with key tools on developing a streamlined process for conducting home modification evaluation reports. Scott Anderle, president and owner of Specialized Home Design Inc, identifies the tools necessary to performing a home modification evaluation. Therapists are instructed on identifying concepts and principles of universal and accessible home design within the home modification evaluation reports. At the end of the seminar, therapists will gain a better sense of how to fully assess the needs of their patients and gain confidence in their ability to help transform their homes into fully functional and comfortable living environments.
