What is the Move Programme and how can it support your child to gain functional mobility?

The Move Programme is a philosophy, a way of life for children with complex needs; providing the personalised care and support they need to gain functional mobility, and increased independence.

Put simply, the Move Programme is a practice put in place so children with complex needs are supported to gain the physical and communication skills they need in order to:

  • SIT to eat, participate in activities, education and eventual employment;
  • STAND to increase strength, mobility and flexibility;
  • WALK to participate in play or complete tasks, with and without support;
  • TRANSITION from bed to chair or sitting to standing.

Roddensvale School have numerous staff and therapy staff trained as advanced practitioners in The Move Programme.
