Powered Mobility in the Classroom June 3, 2024 at 4:15 pm

What if you learned five features and strategies you need to have to control the chair that will relieve your fears? Let’s talk about the features available on all chairs that you need to know to keep everyone safe so your students can be independently mobile through their power chair in your classroom and throughout their school. FIrst we need to be sure we are asking for the best features in a powered mobility chair to increase success in the classroom. Then we need to have a framework on how to train staff on these controls so there is a team addressing increasing powered mobility. Then you can see how activities address language skills, access, literacy and AAC while addressing powered mobility.

Key Learning Outcomes

  • Learn how to use a kill switch to keep all students and adults in the classroom safe.
  • Understand how to toggle from attendant control and student control to use the power chair throughout the entire school day.
  • Provided integrated activities so language, mobility, literacy and AAC skills are being addressed through powered mobility.
