Lynn Hedrick, Owner, MA, CCC SLP, Therapist, Certified Driving Rehabilitation Specialist
Lynn started DriveAble Solutions because the demand in Phoenix was ripe for adaptive driving. She was initially worried whether her mother should continue driving with her advanced medical problems. DriveAble Solutions has become so well known that Lynn lectures frequently to the medical community and news media seeks her out for her expert advice regarding adaptive driving. DriveAble Solutions is on the forefront to provide services due to the implications of the coming tsunami of our aging baby boomer population and challenges related to driving.
