Pre-Mobility Training and Mobility Training


Course Description

When evaluating a client for a power wheelchair, the client may not demonstrate readiness. Instead of giving up, pre-mobility training can be used to develop mobility concepts.

This course will present pre-mobility training strategies to develop readiness. Mobility training strategies optimize power wheelchair use and are presented in the context of a school day. Many students receive their first power wheelchair and bring this immediately to school where the wheelchair may be housed due to accessibility issues. This may leave the school team with the task of teaching the child to use the power wheelchair. Mobility training can be accomplished by pulling the student out of other activities, but can also be done as a part of the school day. Case examples will be presented.
