The 40th annual ADED conference, organized by the Association for Driver Rehabilitation Specialists, brought record attendance of driver evaluators to Columbus, OH. VMI was a proud sponsor and exhibitor at the event, welcoming hundreds of professionals with the common goal of helping persons with disabilities regain independence through options in transportation.
Conference attendees participated in hands-on demonstrations, led by a certified driver specialist, to better understand the finer points of conducting client evaluations. They also learned how accessible vehicle make, model, conversion types and design features can impact just how well a vehicle will meet the needs of each unique client. VMI also introduced a new client evaluation guide—a brochure designed to capture the evaluator’s recommendations and assessments. Clients are provided with the completed evaluation guide to use as a reference and to share with their certified mobility dealers as they shop for a wheelchair accessible vehicle.
