The Mobility Opportunities Via Education (MOVE) International is a non-profit organization dedicated to improving the quality of life for people with motor disabilities and promoting fuller participation in home, school; work and community life. Established in 1995, MOVE International offers an activity-based curriculum designed to help individuals with severe disabilities develop basic, functional motor skills needed for adult life within the home and community environments. The program combines natural body mechanics with an instructional process designed to help individuals with disabilities acquire increasing amounts of motor independence necessary for sitting, standing and walking. It helps individuals from infancy through the geriatric years. MOVE International offers keynote speakers, workshops and clinics for professionals and parents. The MOVE curriculum has been translated from English into French, Italian, German, Spanish, Dutch, Danish, Polish, Arabic and Japanese.
