Swim Whisperers swim lessons are specifically designed to help children overcome the 14 most commonly seen roadblocks in teaching children with Autism, sensory and motor coordination issues how to become safe independent swimmers. The instructors are trained to integrate strategies into a typical swim lesson so the child learns to swim faster and with less discomfort than traditional swim methods.
Understanding the properties of the water and the science behind why a child seeks underwater. For example, the hydrostatic pressure of the water offers their body the deep pressure to satiate their central nervous system and helps them maintain attention to the lesson. The strategy of allowing opportunity to safely submerge several times during a 30 minute swim lesson in order for the child to maintain an organized state for learning to swim is a great example of our methodology. Children learn safe ritual and routine to improve safety awareness in and around all bodies of water.
