Charlotte Peck and Emma Dyer on MOVE – Movement for All

In this interview we discuss the aims of the MOVE programme - an activity-based practice that enables disabled young people to gain independent movement. Charlotte explains how MOVE uses the combined approach of education, therapy and family knowledge to teach the skills of sitting, standing, walking and transitioning between. The programme’s central philosophy is that movement is the foundation for learning, for all children. Charlotte also explains the reasoning behind their new ventures into mainstream education AND the Early Years sector, with Mini MOVE.

Emma, who is passionate about the Early Years, movement and inclusivity, describes all the ways that Mini MOVE helps children with physical disabilities and their families, and also the benefits for all children. She says ‘ Mini MOVE ‘incorporates all, but focuses on some’.

Charlotte has worked for MOVE for four years, leading the organisation as its Director since April 2018. During this time, she has remained dedicated to working towards the charity’s vision: a world where every disabled person has choice and opportunities by learning independent movement. Her work to grow the MOVE Programme, train new organisations and support existing members has taken her to every part of the UK, and further afield to Russia, Denmark and the USA.

Emma is the Relationship and Development Lead for MOVE Europe, working with both mainstream and Special Education Need schools across the UK. Having the privilege to work with schools every week, building and developing on the work of MOVE, this is what drives Emma’s passion. Previously, being a Manager for an outstanding nursery after working her way up from Nursery Practitioner allowed Emma to see first-hand how amazing the Early Years sector can be! Having always had an interest in the way we learn, this led to Emma studying Psychology as an MSc. Today, this allows opportunity to use both her experience and theory in the work being shaped within the fab MOVE team whilst keeping an invested interest in the early years sector close.
