We are excited to be joined by Susie Touchinsky, OTR/L, SCDCM, CDRS, an occupational therapist who is also a certified driving rehab specialist. Have you ever worked with a patient who has sustained a life altering injury but wants or needs to return to driving independently and you aren’t quite sure if they are ready for that? That is where Susie comes in. She brings her expertise as an occupational therapist and looks at the entire person to determine what is safe, if any adaptive equipment is needed, or if ultimately they are not safe to get behind the wheel. She discusses all of this and more.
