Motor Development Program

The Motor Development Program (MDP) provides individualized instruction in the areas of aquatics, fitness, skill development, and community-based recreation to approximately 40 persons, between three and 21 years of age, with cognitive and/or physical disabilities.  Individual and group lessons, interaction with nondisabled peers, community-based training, and interdisciplinary service delivery are key components of the MDP.  The MDP meets year-round in conjunction with the UW- La Crosse academic schedule.
