Abstract: 

Children with severe motor impairments who also have deficits in communication, cognition, vision, and other areas are often not considered for power mobility use. Given the potential benefits of power mobility for this population, this session will introduce the Power Mobility Training Tool (PMTT), an observational tool designed to assist clinicians in developing power mobility training programs for children who have multiple, severe impairments. PMTT item administration and scoring will be detailed. Clinical application of PMTT findings will be illustrated through case-based examples pertaining to the development of individualized beginning power mobility programs for specific children.
