Abstract: The main goal of the MOVE program is to change the lives of people with disabilities, working against the physical and other barriers that affect disabled persons. Its task is to promote full participation in the home, school, work and society and to encourage them and promote independence and dignity which are included and result of the participation. Basic principles and approaches to learning are based on therapeutic modalities combined with the development model shaped through six consecutive steps. The need for development of this type of program arises from the negative experience in the U.S.A., where non-mobile students in the school system ended up with several more abilities than when they started. The MOVE program gives children more opportunities and choices to learn what is important and should overcome for the period of adult life and mature age. The purpose of this article is to provide a review of that how the MOVE program affects on improving the quality of life of persons with disabilities and limited mobility, regardless of their age, more detail presenting specific case report in which MOVE program has already been applied. Taking into account the short time limit of application of the MOVE program, we reach the realization of 4 out of 6 steps, and we wanted to present the how important is who sets the goal. The goal much faster and easier will be reached if is personal motivation of the participant. Application of the MOVE program helps people with impaired mobility capabilities easier to realize their ambitions.
