Sherrie Waugh, MOT, OTR, CDRS
Certified Driving Rehabilitation Specialist
Sherrie Waugh received her Master’s in Occupational Therapy from the University of Indianapolis. She completed her Certified Driving Rehabilitation Specialist training in 2013 and has provided services for a wide range of client populations, including adolescents (ages 15+) and adults living with: Dementia, Alzheimer’s Disease, Mild Cognitive Impairment, Stroke, Aphasia, Brain Injury, Amputations, Spinal Cord Injury, Diabetes, Neuropathy, Parkinson’s Disease, Multiple Sclerosis, Brain Tumor, Macular Degeneration, Glaucoma, Cerebral Palsy, Autism, Spinal Bifida, and Anxiety.
Sherrie provides comprehensive in-clinic and behind the wheel driving evaluations. These evaluations include assessment of the physical, cognitive, and visual skills needed to continue independent driving. Her advanced clinical knowledge and extensive experience in the completion of driving evaluations allow Sherrie to provide accurate and skillful appraisal of driving safety, recommend and administer necessary behind the wheel training, and identify appropriate vehicle modifications (steering devices, left foot accelerator, and hand controls). Sherrie understands that each client values the independence that driving allows and her goal is to assist clients and family members in maintaining their safety and independence behind the wheel. Should driving not be safe anymore despite modifications, Sherrie will provide education on alternate transportation and mobility options.
