WSIU InFocus learns about the Driver Rehabilitation Program at the SIUC Rehabilitation Institute's Evaluation and Developmental Center from Jon Geiger, Director and Driver Rehabilitation Specialist. A part of the College of Education and Human Services, the Driver Rehabilitation Program provides a wide range of services to individuals with disabilities, including Illinois Division of Rehabilitation Services customers, high school students, and individuals recovering from medical problems. Vehicles used in this training program feature state-of-the-art adaptive technologies that are transforming the lives of clients, who in learning how to drive are gaining mobility, independence, and confidence. SIUC students studying Rehabilitation Services also are gaining valuable professional experience while helping to provide real-world services.
