Power Mobility: Is Your Client Ready for a Power Wheelchair?

When recommending a power wheelchair, a number of features must be considered, such as driving method, seating, and drive wheel configuration. Before picking out colors, however, we first need to determine if the client is truly ready for a power wheelchair and, if not, develop readiness. This webinar will present strategies to determine readiness.

Power Mobility: Mobility Training

This webinar will present strategies for optimizing power wheelchair use in the context of a school day. Many students receive their first power wheelchair and bring this immediately to school where the wheelchair may be housed due to accessibility issues. This may leave the school team with the task of teaching the child to use the power wheelchair. Mobility training can be accomplished by pulling the student out of other activities, but can also be done as a part of the school day. Case examples will be presented.

Transition Techniques for Children with Autism Spectrum Disorders: Transform Meltdown to Calm-down

Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) experience frequent melt-downs in transitioning from one activity to another, from one environment to another, and sometimes, from one person to another. These behavioral challenges result in a multitude of negative consequences for the child, instructional and support staff serving the child, the instructional setting, peers, and the family.

The webinar session will examine multiple transitions that occur during a typical school day and classroom activities and demonstrate research-supported strategies and transition techniques and tools to prevent transition meltdowns. Augmented with student and context-specific applications to use across situations, the session will demonstrate how to prevent transition meltdowns to better support children with ASD to make a smooth transition from one activity/environment to another. Participants will gain skills in using positive intervention strategies to provide environmental, visual and structural support aided with technology to help students with ASD.
