Content Overview:

In a continuation of the Don’t Stop There course, attendees will use properly configured chairs to put their wheelchair skills to the test in this practical session. This course is jam-packed with hands-on learning opportunities where we will explore opportunities to make adjustments appropriate for all kinds of presentations we see. We cover the rationale and importance of these skills in everyday life and present strategies for teaching your clients independence to optimise their wheelchair literacy. The latter half of the day will be putting these strategies to use, in a hands-on practice and education session under the guidance of our Clinical Hub. In small groups, we will practice instruction and completion of a variety of wheelchair skills from propulsion to wheelies, transfer strategies and more. Don’t miss your opportunity!
