This curriculum is designed as a ready to use curriculum for pre-professional PTs and PTAs. It is an education and training package with handouts, laboratory assignments, videos and the ANPT Synapse Online Education 10-wheelchair courses to help prepare the entry level workforce and increase the likelihood students are exposed to a minimal standard of WSM knowledge and skills in the practice of WSM. By design, the program focuses on evaluation, prescription, and training to meet the needs of persons with basic level mobility impairments. A separate instructor guide provides resources, templates and sample answers to assignments for approved faculty users.

This is a collaborative project with the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation, Clinical Task Force, University of Hartford Department of Rehabilitation Sciences and Rehabilitation & Technology Consultants.
