Tony Goes Swimming

Swimming has great benefits for all children but for children with autism it can be very calming and therapeutic.

Many of the children I have worked with have a fear of swimming initially but most grew to love it. For some children I spent the first few sessions just dangling our feet in the water then slowly getting into the water, going from arms (at a close choking range) around my neck to gradually holding hands then floating independently with arm bands. I felt it was important to show that it can take time and patience is key.

I really want parents to understand the importance of preparation in all their everyday activities. The easier life is made for a child with ASD the easier life becomes for the parents.
