PROGRAM DETAILS

An estimated 1.6 million Americans utilize assistive technology to achieve improved independence. For health care workers, the responsibility of evaluating clients, determining needs and seeking out the most appropriate form of assistive technology, such as powered mobility, augmentative or assistive communication technology or seating systems, can often be quite intimidating.

This one-day seminar is designed to provide health care professionals and therapists with a working knowledge of performing seating and mobility evaluations as well as the skills to incorporate assistive technology into therapeutic practice to increase their client's independence. Evaluation and assessment techniques and procedures will be presented, including common diagnoses which often warrant alternative mobility, controls or other forms of assistive technology. Information regarding a variety of mobility bases, seating and position options will be reviewed, as well as the abundance of features which may be obtained to increase the client's overall functional independence. Funding sources will be identified, and participants will receive detailed instruction regarding the development of letters of medical necessity, as well as key elements to include in such documents.

In addition, this seminar will serve as an excellent review course for therapists interested in taking the Assistive Technology Practitioner examination via RESNA. The ATP examination will provide the therapist with an abundance of information on examination design and content, complete with sample review questions. For those interested in sitting for the ATP examination, this course is a must!
