Краткое описание

The ability to drive is a major factor in promoting independence for disabled people. This article outlines the case for the establishment of a network of driving assessment centers, preferably attached to rehabilitation centers. The importance of specialist assessment and tuition is emphasized throughout the literature. The literature regarding the assessment process is reviewed, in particular the difficult and important issue of neuropsychological assessment for driving. The literature emphasizes the importance of on-the-road assessment and emphasizes the dangers of relying too heavily on office-based neuropsychological and medical assessment. The specific problems of certain disorders are outlined, including stroke, Parkinson's disease, dementia, and epilepsy. Finally, the article outlines some of the potential vehicle adaptations required to accommodate disabled people. The great majority of disabled people can be accommodated in a vehicle, and suitable adaptations will normally allow them to drive both legally and safely. Some of the residual problems regarding safety, finance, teaching, and training are also summarized from the literature, and some of the future possibilities regarding driving for disabled people are also covered. The article emphasizes the importance of access to a car for disabled people and shows from a review of the literature that in most cases it is entirely possible for people even with more severe disabilities to continue to drive.
