Wheelchair Skills Training
“The guys gently pushed you out of your comfort zone by showing you how to do things and trying different ways of doing the same thing. I would never have tried the things I can now do without the support of the group.”
If you live in the Waikato, Bay of Plenty and Lakes regions, and would like to learn some skills to help you get around easier in the community, please fill out the Expression of Interest form. We run groups for kids and adults throughout the region based on demand. Our mentors provide a fun and stimulating environment for all. A technician and therapist are available to make any adjustments that will help progress your skills. The groups are based on the Wheelchair Skills Programme developed by the Wheelchair Research team at Dalhousie University, Canada.
