Move Programme​

 

The MOVE Programme places movement at the centre of learning; teaches through routine activities and in real life situations.

Who can The Move Programme support?

The Move Programme is ongoing throughout the participant’s life. Move not only benefits participants on the programme but also parents and carers who because of the person’s increased mobility spend less time on routine care.

  • Provides a way to effectively combine therapy and education.
  • Provides a way to utilise time spent on routine care, to teach and practice functional skills.
  • Provides a record keeping and evaluation system.
  • Provides a programme which goes from early childhood to adulthood.

What happens next?

The class team would identify a pupil for the programme, complete a referral form and return to Florin Iakab.  The team would then assess and select pupils for the programme.  Following a baseline assessment of the pupil, Teachers, Parents/Carers and other professionals would then be consulted and invited to a conversational meeting with the MOVE Team.

  • ‘Pupils' relationships with adults are excellent, and they learn respect and appropriate behaviour from the staff. Pupils are accepting of each other’s varying needs, and show pleasure in each other’s successes.’
