Assessments for Assistive Devices

The Assistive Devices Program (ADP) is a program operated by the Ministry of Health that provides consumer support and funding to Ontario residents who have long-term physical disabilities. Devices covered by the program are intended to enable people with physical disabilities to increase their independence through access to assistive devices responsive to their individual needs. These are items may include manual and power wheelchairs, rollators and walkers, scooters, and specialized seating.

The occupational therapist makes recommendations for assistive devices and aides to assist the client in resuming their pre-accident activities in a safe manner while providing education on the proper usage of each device to maximize independence.
