Swim Angelfish’s mission is to help swimmers with special needs become safe and independent in the water.
We Are a Certified Autism Center!
We are pleased to announce Swim Angelfish has earned certification as a Certified Autism Center. This designation given by IBCCES (International Board of Credentialing and Continuing Education Standards) is awarded to organizations who have completed a training and review process to better serve individuals with sensory needs. We offer a variety of programs are offered that are targeted, but not necessarily limited to, swimmers with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), attention difficulties, anxiety, sensory challenges, physical disabilities and coordination difficulties. These include OT/PT aquatic therapy, Swim Whisperers® swim lessons, water-based therapy training, as well as in-person seminars and private therapy workshops. We also offer a full online program for Swim Whisperers® swim lesson training. Co-Founders Cindy Freedman & Ailene Tisser have also earned their Certified Autism Specialist Certification through IBCCES to equip themselves with even more knowledge and best practices to ensure children with autism and other sensory disorders will enjoy the best possible experience that caters to their needs.
