Description:  In our upcoming webinar, learn and discover more about the Wheelchair Skills Program (WSP), an online resource offering free, evidence-based assessment and training for wheelchair users, spanning manual wheelchairs, powered wheelchairs, and motorized mobility scooters. The WSP, a user-friendly initiative, empowers individuals with mobility impairments allowing them to have greater independence in their day-to-day activities. This event is a chance to understand more about how the WSP, a low-tech, high-impact training is applicable in various settings. Join us as we navigate towards enhanced mobility and inclusivity for older adults with diverse mobility needs.
