Mobility Opportunities Via Education
MOVE helps children and adults with severe disabilities acquire
increased independence in sitting, standing, and walking so they
may experience, learn and gain more mobility, better health, and
enhanced personal dignity. The mission statement of MOVE is founded
in the belief that the ability to move is the first foundation stone
in building personal dignity.
MOVE produces results through hard work, repetition and dedication
by trained professionals. The commitment by these professionals
and families means people once relegated to spending life in a beanbag
or wheelchair have gained or regained mobility that permits them
to interact in life and their community. Gait trainers, regular
tables, regular classroom chairs, adapted chairs, standers and forward
leaning walkers are used. Prompts are reduced over time so dependence
on equipment is minimized.
