  • Mission Statement

    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.

    WHAT IS MOVE?
     

    MOVE (Mobility Opportunities Via Education/Experience) helps children and adults with severe disabilities acquire more abilities (and independence) to sit, stand, walk and transition. This is achieved through instruction and adaptive equipment.  With these increased abilities, there is:

    1) better health,

    2) less burden for care providers to move or lift people,

    3) more dignity, and

    4) new opportunities for fuller participation and inclusion in family life, school and community.
