Adapted Driver Education is for teens/adults with disabilities and aging individuals requiring vehicle modifications following an injury or illness.
Learning to drive, or regaining the ability to drive, empowers people with disabilities to live more independent lives as this new found mobility lets them participate more fully vocationally, socially and recreationally within the community.
For over 40 years, we have provided professional, high quality driver evaluations and Adapted Driver Education for new teen and adult drivers with varied physical and developmental disabilities, aging individuals with driving concerns, and those who may require assistive or vehicle modifications following an injury or illness. The Adapted Driver Education program, supported by State Farm, is designed to assess the ability of persons with disabilities, aging adults and senior citizens to drive and to teach them how to utilize assistive devices as needed and operate modified and traditional vehicles.
Thoroughly trained, occupational therapists and driver education teachers perform the evaluations and conduct lessons in modern, state-of-the art cars and vans.
The pre-driver evaluation assesses the individual’s ability to safely operate a motor vehicle and includes a:
• Cognitive/perceptual evaluation
• In-vehicle evaluation
• Technical assistance and consultation
All evaluations and driving lessons are conducted at The Viscardi Center in Albertson.
