Developing an Inclusive Aquatic Program Suitable for all Abilities

91% of parents in the Autism Swim community have left other aquatic services due to them not understanding or accommodating their child’s needs. Hence, the demand for swimming instructors/teachers with specialised training specific to ASD and swimming is rapidly increasing.

In this programme, Jess provides an introduction to Autism Swim with discussions including:

  • What is Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD)?
  • Specialist supports in aquatic environments.
  • The 10 most common challenges experienced in lessons.

This programme contains a full webinar recording which has already taken place, delivered by Jessica Thackeray, Paediatric Occupational Therapist (Autism Swim).
