The MOVE Programme

 Sitting gives a child the freedom to use their arms and hands.Teaching a child to sit will help reduce the amount of prompts needed to maintain a sitting position whether sitting on the floor, chair a bench or edge of bed.

Here at Millstead we use fully supportive walkers to help teach children reciprocal stepping patterns in the early stages of learning to walk. In time we hope to reduce the amount of support over time  which will greater independence is achieved.
