Safe Travel for All Children: Transporting Children with Special Healthcare Needs” is designed to serve as an enrichment training for Child Passenger Safety Technicians (CPSTs). This initiative is specifically intended for occupational therapists, physiotherapists, medical equipment vendors, or other healthcare staff who directly support the safe positioning and transportation needs of children and youth as part of their role.
The two-day training combines classroom lectures and discussions with hands-on exercises including interactions with families. Participants will review medical conditions that can affect restraint selection and have the opportunity to investigate and install specialized restraint systems for vehicles. The training includes a written exam and proficiency check-offs that evaluate the student’s ability to assess appropriate restraints and to demonstrate proper selection, use and installation.
This unique training will be co-taught by a team of the following:
– Krista Fraser (OT/Founder, Little Ones Therapy Services PC)
– Katherine Hutka (Child Safety Link, IWK Health Centre)
Application: There are 12 positions available: We will be prioritizing applications from Atlantic Canada.
