The ability to move around in one's community enables occupation, which in turn, promotes health and quality of life. Occupational therapy practitioners need to address community mobility as an IADL with virtually all clients, especially those for whom driving is not an option. This course provides an overview of community mobility as it relates to clients of all life stages and with various disabilities or medical conditions. It offers an introduction to assessment, client- and community- level interventions, ethical considerations, and resources.
