Connie Jean Wilson came to Easterseals after having a stroke which affected her speech and ability to move the right side of her body. After extensive therapy, she can now walk and complete daily tasks independently. There is one more thing that Ms. Wilson hopes to accomplish after her stroke, she wants to drive again. To achieve this goal, she participated in our Driver Assessment program- a highly specialized program designed to assess a person’s abilities with driving in mind. After going through the clinical assessment and on the road testing in a fully equipped adaptive vehicle, it was determined that Ms. Wilson demonstrated the ability to safely operate a motor vehicle with the use of adaptive equipment. Specialized hand and foot controls were installed in her vehicle. She will soon return to Easterseals to attend the Adaptive Driver Training Program, where she will continue to practice and improve her proficiency and driving independence. We are thrilled to help Connie Jean meet her personal goals!
