A frequently overlooked yet important topic is seating and positioning within the family vehicle. Many families are unaware of the variety of special needs seats that are available to provide their child with the needed and necessary postural support and protection to ensure safety during transportation. This course will provide education on what child restraints are available, what benefits they can offer, and how to go about selecting and acquiring a special needs car seat.
