DRIVING WITH AUTISM/ADH/ANXIETY AND OTHER LEARNING CHALLENGES
DRIVING WITH A PHYSICAL DISABILITY
DRIVER COGNITIVE ASSESSMENTS AND DRIVER ON ROAD EVALUATIONS
Physical, cognitive and learning challenges can impact learning to drive.
THE SAFER SOLUTION
There are other learning challenges that can affect a person’s ability to drive. At Safer Driver Solutions, we recognize that each of our students is unique with specific needs to be accounted for in their driving instruction.
We provide services to both individuals and clients of physicians or medical centers.
DRIVING WITH CHALLENGES
At Safer Driver Solutions, our special program is developed to meet the unique needs of our students.
We work with each student and their support team to create an Individualized Driver Education Plan (IDEP). Driving is an important part of daily life for work, school and lifestyle purposes. Our intent is to give each student the ability to be active participants in society.
Age Range: We serve individuals ages 14 and up..
OUR VIRTUAL REALITY (VR) SIMULATOR
At Safer Driver Solutions, we use our VR Simulator to evaluate new clients who either have never driven before, or have limited driving experience. Students will drive in a variety of traffic simulations. These simulations will give us insights that will influence the creation of each student’s IDEP.
