Wheelchair to Walker: Educators and SLPs are Encouraging Hands-Free Walker Mobility for Students with Complex Communication and Physical Needs

 Presented on September 9, 2020

This webinar, presented by Christine Wright-Ott, OTR, MPA, and moderated by Sarah Blackstone, PhD, CCC-SLP. describes a multidisciplinary (SLP, OT, ATP, Teacher) Walker Mobility Program for preschool and elementary students with physical disabilities implemented at The Bridge School since 2006. The team recognized the developmental, social, physical, psychological and educational benefits of embedding self-initiated mobility into the curricula. Diagnoses of these children included cerebral palsy (CP) and cortical vision impairment (CVI). Students participated in self-initiated mobility experiences through the use of hands-free support walkers, such as the Pacer, KidWalk, ProneWalk, and Grillo.
