The Movement Centre is a UK charity and specialist treatment centre. We are dedicated to supporting children and their families living with movement disabilities.

We have a small but dedicated team who work closely with families. We provide a specialist therapy called Targeted Training to help children gain movement control. Targeted Training therapy can enable children to develop new skills and become far more independent.  This can have a huge impact on their life. It can also make a big difference to the lives of their family and friends.

Through a course of Targeted Training therapy children can gain head control, so they can interact with their family; it can help children develop the skills to sit unaided, so that they can play with their friends. For some children it can enable them to walk, which means they can be far more independent!

Our clinical team are specialists in Targeted Training therapy, which has been developed at The Movement Centre over the last 22 years. This means that they have a real understanding of the challenges families face and how best we may be able to support them.

Targeted Training can help improve movement and independence for children with various degrees of disability. Targeted Training mimics the natural development of control in newborn infants, while the child is up against gravity; an approach not adopted by any other centre.  During the 9 – 12 month course of Targeted Training a specially designed standing frame is used. Each frame is tailored and adjusted to the child’s specific requirements. The frame goes home with the child so they can repeat their exercises daily, with regular 8 week reviews at the centre.
