These skills allow them to enjoy a more inclusive life-style. It combines natural body movement with an instructional process designed to help children and adults acquire increasing amounts of independence in sitting, standing and walking. The MOVE Curriculum recognizes that carers (a British term for parents and care givers) and individuals themselves have immense knowledge of what their needs are and fully involves them in developing a program to meet those needs. The framework also helps coordinate services provided by therapists, educators, agencies and others-a real team approach. 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. Life is no longer relegated to a bean bag, floor mat, wheelchair or bed.
