Did you know that swimming can have lifelong benefits for children with special needs? Sign your child up for this swimming class that can change their life forever!
In this 1-hour private swimming class, your child will be introduced to water safety and basic swimming skills. With constant support from a certified swimming coach, they will learn how to use various muscles to help them move through the water with ease.
Being in swim lessons can help teach a child with special needs to communicate with their instructor and receive and carry out instructions. This improves their socialization skills and enhances their confidence both in and out of the pool.
The instructor will cover the following topics:
- How to safely breathe underwater
- How to use their legs to kick through the water
- How to use arms to tread and maneuver through the water
You can choose to book 1 session, 6 sessions, or 12 sessions depending on your child's needs and goals. The class can be taken with one additional person, but both students must be at the same level to be placed in the same class.
