Project: Travel Training for Disabled Students

Reference: UG463A

Last update: 29/06/2005 14:19:47

Objectives

The objective is to develop and monitor an existing travel training programme for 11-19 year olds to establish best practice in that field.

The results will be disseminated to the transport authorities, local education authorities, disability organisations and others with an interest in ensuring that, wherever appropriate, disabled children have the skills needed to become users of mainstream transport sevices.

Description

The project will produce practical guidance on tranport travel training for disabled students. This guidance will be used to give advice to public transport operators, local authorities, parents and schools.
