Em-POWERment: Power mobility training methods for children and adolescents with multiple severe disabilities

Register online by October 31, 2017 

Presenter: Lisa Kenyon

Clinicians often report difficulties in providing power mobility training for children with multiple or severe impairments and may lack confidence in their own ability to work with complex equipment such as a power mobility device. This webinar will promote knowledge translation through case-based examples that illustrate the feasibility of including power mobility training interventions in the plan of care for children who have multiple, severe impairments.

After taking part in this webinar, participants will: 
  1. Discuss three potential benefits of using power mobility training interventions with children and adolescents who have multiple, severe disabilities. 
  2. Describe five steps to creating power mobility training programs to meet the individual needs of children and adolescents who have multiple, severe disabilities. 
  3. Discuss three means by which to evaluate outcomes and expectations for the use of power mobility interventions in this unique population.
