MOVE (Mobility Opportunity Via Education)
MOVE is a practical mobility programme based around the philosophy that movement is the foundation for learning and uses the combined knowledge of families, carers, education and therapy staff. Regular opportunities are created throughout the child’s normal daily routine for increased practice and progression of skills required to reach aspirational goals and is appropriate for all ages and abilities to increase independent mobility, develop cognitive and communication skills and improve health and social inclusion.
MOVE provides a framework which brings the services around the child, encouraging collaborative working. This integrated approach focuses the whole multi-agency team on the individualised targets for the child and their family.
It is designed to teach anyone who has not yet learnt to sit, stand, walk and transfer by the age they would be expected to, or those that have lost these skills, to increase their independent mobility to the best of their ability.
