How do occupational therapy practitioners who are not specialized in driving assessment and intervention determine if a client needs a driving evaluation? This presentation provides an overview of crash related statistics pertaining to adolescents, adults, and older adults, and a focus on the driving performance skills important for safe driving. It then presents ways for the generalist practitioner to identify at-risk drivers by utilizing screening tests already being used in the clinic. In so doing the generalist may intervene to improve the basic performance skills or to make appropriate referrals.
