Vermont Early Mobility: a trio of images. First, a parade of toddlers moves along the cracked sidewalk in front of a school, the last toddler in line riding a power mobility aid. Next, a chubby white toddler with pink-framed glasses and a pink snowsuit sits happily in a power mobility car parked inside a classroom. Finally, a toddler bundled into a red snowsuit, goggles and wooly hat gasps in delight as they drive a power mobility chair over concrete.

Exploring early mobility options for children ages 6 months to 6 years with families and medical teams

We believe that current research, information, and support should be available to all Vermont families and teams who would like to explore mobility options for their young children.

All children learn from being able to move and be included within their home, school, and community. Having a way to move by themselves increases a child’s visual skills, cognitive and sensory-motor development, social and play opportunities. Movement also gives children the ability to explore and learn by making choices for themselves.

Vermont Early Mobility (VEM) is a project of UVM’s Center on Disability and Community Inclusion with funding support from the Vermont Child Health Improvement Program (VCHIP) through the University of Vermont Medical Center.
