The presentation took the audience through Total Ability’s mission to work with all our partners and in particular with Specialist Driving Instructors. Many Driving Instructors are adding work in the Disability space to their offerings.
Specialist Driver Training Team
We work as a team with the Specialist Driving Instructor, the Driver-trained Occupational Therapist and our aim is to provide high quality, safe driving solutions to help people with disabilities gain & maintain their independence safely, competently & confidently.
Geoff elaborated on our provision of quality products as exclusive distributors of Fadiel Italiana & SMDM driving controls, vehicle access & transport products. He also raised the audience’s awareness on the range of products available to make what is often thought as impossible, possible.
Innovation – Satellite Accelerator
The latest Satellite Accelerator for example demonstrates the latest innovation that makes it possible for a wider range of people with disabilities to gain independence and control of their life.
Our approach is to build supportive relationships & knowledge among key providers who are crucial to the client’s journey was a key message. We have built a reputation over many years for quality equipment, reliability & attentive, responsive support.
First Hand Knowledge = Superior Customer Service
Our strength is to support our partners – Driving OTs, Specialist Driving Instructors and Installers – throughout Australia and New Zealand. Our first-hand knowledge of the challenges to create solutions that deliver true independence is the foundation that our partners can rely on coupled with quality products and service.
