Assessment of learning powered mobility use—Applying grounded theory to occupational performance

Lisbeth Nilsson, PhD, OTR; Josephine Durkin, PhD, DipCOT

A new assessment tool for powered mobility has been developed with the focus on the learner’s actual performance and learning. The instrument Assessment of Learning Powered Mobility Use is used together with a set of facilitating learning strategies that help with the fine tuning of practice so that learners are presented with “the just right challenge” as part of their rehabilitation. This approach meets the needs of people with cognitive and physical disabilities who need to work on skills such as regulating attention, using tools, multitasking, solving problems, and making judgments.
