The MOVE Programme
The Move Programme is a philosophy, a way of life for disabled children, and disabled people 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 disabled children and disabled people 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.
At St Nicholas; students who have a MOVE programme in place will practise their individual tasks and targets daily. However we also have bespoke weekly MOVE sessions; where we work in collaboration with our Physio’s, OTs and SaLTs to deliver topic based sessions that encourage the students to practise and show off their skills.
During this term the students will enjoy a range of activities through the story of going to the spa. They will arrive smelling atomizer and begin to relax in a calm sensory environment surrounded by lights and music. Students will experience a variety of relaxing techniques for example floor stretches, foot spas, movement songs and parachute to support with their programme.
Parent Coffee Morning
We had a successful parent awareness MOVE coffee morning, thank you to all those that attended. We will have another one in January, during the discussions lots of suggestions were made. Including difficulties when taking young people with learning disabilities into the community. Below is the website changing places, we hope to see more of you in January.
