We were thrilled to be invited to provide our training to over one hundred rehabilitation specialists at their annual conference last week in Columbus, Ohio. The Association for Driver Rehabilitation Specialists (ADED) certainly was a welcoming crowd and we delivered our training seminar to a packed conference room on August 15th. . These specialists are highly trained professionals with quite impressive credentials as they are globally recognized as the primary resource and standard-bearer for driver rehabilitation expertise.
We enjoyed meeting with the organizers and so many of the specialists who serve those who struggle with driving due to accident, injury or other challenges including invisible disabilities such as ADHD. It was especially exciting for us to mingle with the members of ADED before and after our presentation to hear their stories of how they work with people who have special needs and want to drive.
One of the many tricky decisions parents of young people with disabilities (including ADHD) must face is whether their child is ready to get behind the wheel and drive a car independently. We honor the efforts of the ADED professionals as they work to provide support, training, and effective education modifications to these families.
