Services, P.A. is the leader in driver rehabilitation. A registered Occupational Therapist with State certification as a driver instructor and specialty training in driver rehabilitation conducts a clinical evaluation at the client’s home to determine strength and limitations – physically, visually, cognitively and perceptually as they relate to driving. Then a behind-the-wheel assessment in the client’s own environment determines the ability to combine these skills to drive safely. Driver training is provided for those who would benefit. Training occurs on an individual basis, dealing with specific needs and covering every aspect of safe driving. Vehicles with special modifications are provided. If modifications are needed for the client’s vehicle, the therapist will direct the process and consult with the vendor modifying the vehicle.

Normal effects of aging
