Return to Driving Screening
Covenant's occupational therapy team provides a basic evaluation of driving abilities through specialized clinical testing and assistance. Any disabled person is a candidate for our driving rehabilitation program; however, a physician's prescription is required. Applicants must have a valid driver's license and be seizure-free for a six-month period of time. This is an initial step to determining further driver's training or treatment.
Our driving program evaluates persons with disabilities such as:
- Head injury and spinal cord injury
- Multiple sclerosis
- Muscular dystrophy
- Cerebral palsy
- Neurological problems
- Alzheimer's disease
Once a client is referred to the program, they are evaluated by an occupational therapist for basic abilities of safe driving. The assessment process evaluates the following areas:
- Basic motor function or upper and lower extremities
- Range of motion
- Transfer abilities
- Reaction time
- Visual scanning, perception and acuity
- Night vision/glare vision
- Peripheral vision
- Color discrimination
- Road sign recognition
- Problem-solving skills
Following the assessment, the therapist provides the individual's referring physician a comprehensive recommendation based on the assessment of the participant's driving-related skills. The therapist does not have the ability to grant or remove an individual's driving license.
