At Access to Independence, we provide Client Evaluation and Treatment, Education, and Consultation.
Client Evaluation and Treatment
Services include client evaluation and on-going treatment in the areas of Positioning and Access. Access is how a person controls specific assistive technology, including power wheelchairs, speech generating devices, computers and electronic aids to daily living. The goal of successful access is independence in specific tasks such as mobility, communication (written and verbal), recreation, and control over devices in the home environment.
Services also include Home Modification Evaluations, specifically for people who use wheelchairs.
Education Services includes webinars, conference presentations, and hands-on workshops locally and nationwide, including the following topics:
Positioning for function
Power mobility assessment, driving methods and training
Pediatric power mobility
Advanced power wheelchair features and applications
Switch assessment: determining switch type and site
Mounting speech generating devices
Specific trainings are also available for evaluation teams, manufacturers, suppliers, consumers, disability advocates, and funding sources.
Please contact Michelle Lange to discuss fee structure and billing options.
Consultation Services include writing, editing, product development, course development, and creation of educational and CEU materials.
