Adaptive Driving Rehabilitation

Adaptive Driver Education and Training (ADET) is an evaluation and training program designed for persons with disabilities. The goal of the program is to enable persons with disabilities to learn to drive safely and independently in their own vehicles with the use of adaptive equipment and/or compensatory techniques. The evaluator identifies individuals with physical or cognitive impairments that have the potential to drive safely and then works with them to acquire their permit or license. This includes clinical and on-the-road training with one of our certified driving rehab specialists.

Common Diagnoses Served By this Program:

  • Stroke
  • Traumatic Brain Injury
  • Amputations
  • Impairments in Visual Processing
  • Spina Bifida
  • Spinal Cord Injuries
  • Alzheimer's Disease
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Intellectual Disabilities
  • Various Progressive Diseases
"My legs have been weak all of my life, but they have gotten to where I felt unsafe driving over the past couple of months. The hand controls that I now use are great and I feel safe driving my grandkids to and from school events! Thank you so much for giving me my independence back."
