Special Needs Swimming Lessons
We do conduct swimming lessons for people with special needs, such as lower learning ability and Autism. The class is conducted in individual lesson where our instructors can give full attention to the student. Swimming lessons help children with special needs in physical, social and emotional development. It also promoted self-esteem, happiness and can lead to positive social outcomes. This group of children requires patient understanding as well as a well-thought plan on the lessons for them to adapt well. Parents involvement in the lesson for group class is necessary.
