"Empowerment and participation come with the ability to to experience the world and communicate."

Only when communication is recognized and consistently reinforced will those with severe physical, sensory-motor, communicative and developmental differences find the effort to communicate worthwhile.

Every Move Counts represents the completion of a 33-month Innovative Research Grant awarded by the National Institutes of Health and funded through the National Institutes for the Neurologically and Communicatively Disordered.

Ninety-one children and 41 speech/language pathologists, teachers and occupational therapists from seven different sites participated in the implementation and validation of the Every Move Counts approach.
