Course Overview

This course will be introduced during an on-line one-hour orientation session, then conducted for the remainder of the semester at the clinical site of the mentor, supplemented with available weekly consultation sessions with the course instructor. The course is designed to provide students with the opportunity to apply theoretical principles learned in Foundations, Models and Theory (OTH 6150), and evaluation and intervention skills acquired in Screening, Assessment, Evaluation and Intervention (OTH 6153) in a clinical setting. Under the supervision of an experienced (certified) driver rehabilitation specialist (i.e., mentor), students will make fitness to drive decisions and produce assignments consistent with the expectations to be prepared as an entry level driver rehabilitation therapist.
