Abstract

Date Presented 4/9/2016

Driving is a complex occupation that has been laborious to assess and challenging to rehabilitate. This study describes how occupational therapists can now use the simulator to evaluate the strategic level of driving (navigation) and consider using a GPS as an assistive device to improve driving performance.
