Autism Swim is a swim safety program, specifically designed for people diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). The program teaches participants how to be safe around water, while also increasing swimming skills.
All RehabCo instructors have received Autism Swim certification, giving them the resources, skills and support to effectively teach participants with ASD how to swim safely. Parents and carers will also be given the opportunity to learn practical skills to help decrease the chances of wandering and drowning.
The program is suitable for children and young adults aged 7-25 years, and can be delivered 1:1 or in a small group format. Autism Swim is also tailored to meet the needs, goals and strengths of each participant.
