With each child a goal is set of helping him or her become physically active and learn the life-saving skill of swimming. The ultimate goal is to work with them through a progression that provides them with another avenue for integration into a small group of highly functional special needs children.

We aim to have a strong positive impact on their lives and help them learn an important like & safety skill!!

In addition to body conditioning, learning water skills gives special needs children confidence and a sense of achievement – and they have fun exploring new boundaries with success.

The special needs child’s water experience is exciting, educational, substantive and fulfilling for them.

How important are swim lessons to special needs children?

Teaching kids with special needs to swim is not only a good idea, it’s essential.  Swimming lessons help kids with special needs in a number of key areas, including greater muscle strength and physical endurance, increased flexibility, more self-control, and, in many instances, improved behavioral outcomes.

Too often children with special needs are excluded from sports or have a difficult time..

Swimming offers a special needs child with success no matter what the outcome, which is hard to come by in other situations in their life. The benefits from it are just amazing and are great therapy for a child with special needs!!

We created a Learn to Swim program that includes a patient understanding of each swimming student as well as a well-thought-out plan for how the lessons can be adapted to each child.  

Here is an overview on our effective swimming program for children with special needs:

  • Give each child individualized attention...our coaches are patient and work with the child at his own pace to get him adapted to be and move in water confidently.
  • Use appropriate adaptive equipment. To make the water experience more positive and easier for them...like floating mats and more.
  • Limit distractions...like harsh lighting or background noises.
  • Consistent. Our instructors are consistent in their teaching times, methods & routines.
  • Adapt to the needs of each child...by adapting the lessons to match the ways in which each child learns best.
  • Emphasize basic water skills -- Before attempting to teach swimming via traditional strokes, it’s important to make sure that each child masters basic water skills like breathing, maneuvering underwater, and flotation.  These skills will not come naturally for many children, which is why a patient, consistent teaching method is best.
  • Make it fun -- Getting into the water for the first time can be a scary experience for many special need’s children. We Try to reduce water anxiety by making their experience fun and giving them plenty of praise and encouragement.
  • Plan for safety -- safety is a top priority in our swimming program.  Safety measures include having a private lesson, clean water, qualified swim instructor, and a planned ahead plan.

The risk of drowning for children with special needs is more than double that of a typically developing child.

That’s why we encourage and urge all individuals to teach & learn this life & safety skill!
