Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist

Dr. Luther King, clinical assistant professor in the Department of Occupational Therapy recently received the designation as a Certified Driver Rehabilitation Specialist (CDRS) which exemplifies competency and credibility in driver rehabilitation. To become a CDRS Dr. King had to meet specific criteria and provided over 1,600 hours of direct driver rehabilitation services as well as pass a rigorous examination. He is now 1 of 20 active certified driver rehabilitation specialists in Florida and 1 of 350 in the U.S. and Canada. This is a significant achievement as there is a great need for driver rehabilitation services in the Gainesville area and surrounding cities. Dr. King is looking forward to providing services to meet the driver rehabilitation needs throughout the life span of individuals of the Gainesville community and beyond in the years to come.
