During the CRT decision-making process, there may be challenges from a multitude of directions in determining when and how to initiate power mobility for our youngest clients. Regardless of these potential challenges, historical and current literature both show us that there is no time like the present. This course will discuss what tools are available to guide our decisions, defining terminology surrounding readiness and independence, as well as suggestions for evaluation and recommendation of power mobility interventions in the pediatric population.
Participants will be able to describe two ways to effectively use standardized assessments when completing an evaluation for a pediatric power wheelchair.
Participants will be able to identify two age-appropriate goals for power mobility utilization and training.
Participants will be able to list three potential benefits of introducing power mobility as early as possible.
