Wheelchair Skills Trainers
Individuals will receive remotely delivered wheelchair skills training, after which they will be assessed on their ability to teach the Wheelchair Skills Trainees a series of wheelchair skills in a one-on-one environment. The intervention for this group is Wheelchair Skills Training - Remote.
Behavioral: Wheelchair Skills Training - Remote
Individuals will receive wheelchair skills training remotely. They will be provided with the Wheelchair Skills Training Program to review (http://www.wheelchairskillsprogram.ca/eng/index.php), and then will be directed to use this information to perform the wheelchair skills. They will video the attempts, and will receive feedback on methods to improve their techniques.
Wheelchair Skills Trainees
Individuals will receive one-on-one wheelchair skills training from the Wheelchair Skills Trainers. The intervention for this group is Wheelchair Skills Training - In Person.
Behavioral: Wheelchair Skills Training - In Person
Individuals will receive wheelchair skills training in one-on-one sessions, taught by those who received the wheelchair skills training remotely.
- Change from baseline in wheelchair skills capacity of trainees at study completion as measured by the Wheelchair Skills Test Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Baseline, and at study completion ( an average of 3 weeks) ]Trainees will have increased capacity to perform wheelchair skills after receiving one-on-one skills training.
- Change from baseline in wheelchair skills confidence of trainees at study completion as measured by the Wheelchair Skills Test Questionnaire [ Time Frame: Baseline, and at study completion ( an average of 3 weeks) ]Trainees will have increased confidence in their ability to perform wheelchair skills after receiving one-on-one skills training.
