M.O.V.E. PROGRAM
Mobility Opportunities
Via Education


THE M.O.V.E. PROGRAM
Mobility Opportunities Via Education (M.O.V.E.) is a program of First Nurturing Touch Communication, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization.  M.O.V.E. is dedicated to helping children and adults with disabilities sit, stand and walk. 

M.O.V.E. reflects our belief that people with severe disabilities can achieve mobility one move at a time.  This is achieved through instruction and adaptive equipment that enhances independent mobility.  M.O.V.E. underscores our commitment that we are here for all people - no matter what their disability. 

M.O.V.E. is the result of years of testing, trials, research, patience and faith that people with disabilities can gain or regain mobility.  It represents care and concern by teachers, trainers, physical therapists, physiotherapists, parents and caregivers who are committed to moving people with disabilities from a restrictive environment to a more inclusive lifestyle. 

THE PURPOSE OF M.O.V.E. IS TO: 

* Use education as a means to systematically acquire motor skills. 

* Provide a program whereby participants naturally practice their motor skills while engaged in other educational or leisure activities. 

* Provide a way to measure small increments of functional motor skills and therefore, provide a way to show improvement. 

* Provide the individual with the basic motor skills which are needed for development of other skills such as expressive language and self-care. 

MISSION STATEMENT



The mission of First Nurturing Touch Communication is to provide education, training and strategies to families, and to those professionals who serve them, to promote 
communicatively competent, healthy, 
and loving relationships.
