Mobility Opportunities via Education
What is MOVE®?
MOVE® helps learners with physical disabilities acquire increased independence in sitting, standing, and walking - to experience, learn and gain more mobility, better health and enhanced personal dignity. MOVE® produces results through hard work, repetition and dedication.
The MOVE® programme was introduced to the school in 1999. We aim to have all staff trained as movement educators. Individual MOVE® programmes are designed by our transdisciplinary team for any student who is not independent in their mobility.
