Ben had his long awaited OT Driving Assessment in October 2016, and it went really well.
Ben is behind the wheel in the photos on this page. The photos also show Ben driving on the open road. You cannot see his face as the windows are closed but you imagine him smiling! Ben was behind the wheel with the OT assessor operating separate overriding controls from the passenger seat just in case.
This particular vehicle is used to determine what modifications Ben specifically requires. We have submitted an application to NDIS to fund at least part of the huge cost to modify the vehicle. Ben will require specialised driving lessons which cost more.
Driving means independence and a new outlook on life for Ben.
