That’s a good point Jeanne…thanks for mentioning that

We will send the powerpoint slides to everyone after the webinar. Thank you!
are there any travel training programs in the southeast MA area
Do the travel trainers teach the use of private transportation options....busess, uber etc.
Susan I’ll ask your question in just a minute
Are there wheelchair accessible taxis in Western Mass?
Nothing innovative here. Coaching around use of public transportation.
Very curious about voluteer drivers.
One of the few participants in our program with a license and car has self-employed himself by driving other participants at cheaper rates than uber/taxi services.
We have had some families use (although llimited} DDS Flex Funding to purchase transportation through https://www.roundtriphealth.com/ for wheelchair transportation to and from a respite/other non-medical or PT-1 ineligible type access.
