MOVE is a philosophy...a way of life and proven practice in which individuals with multiple disabilities can learn to:
· SIT to eat, participate in activities, study, and even work;
· STAND for activities such as washing at a sink and food prep;
· WALK to move to participate in play or complete tasks (with and without support);
· TRANSITION from bed to chair, sitting to standing, etc.
Children and adults with multiple disabilities, and their care providers and educators, benefit from innovative techniques and training provided as part of the MOVE program. Many individuals who had little hope now have opportunities for inclusion within families, agencies, schools and centers, and communities.
Thank you to our Heartwood staff who have integrated MOVE into everyday activities to improve student outcomes. #inghamimpact
