What Makes Adaptive Aquatics Different?

Every child learns differently and at their own pace. Adaptive Aquatics is very aware of this and prepared to teach children with all types of learning modalities and disabilities. So what makes us different?

  • We are innovators in the swimming community by taking our experience working with children with special needs in the school setting and creating an educated approach to swim instruction. You won’t find any other program out there like us.
  • We teach our student’s to INDEPENDENTLY swim and float without flotation, regardless of water depth in just a few months in most cases. Our program is designed to provide the students and instructors the time and consistency to acquire the swim-float-swim skill. When this skill is achieved, students can truly begin to conquer fears and become confident and skilled in the water for a lifetime of swimming.
  • Our instructors are highly educated, trained, and professional. You won’t find anyone just working a summer job here. Teaching students swimming and safety in the water is our career and our passion.
  • We are experienced in adapting instruction to meet the needs of a variety of students using cutting edge, research based strategies. Some strategies we use include
    • Visual teaching materials
    • Functional Routines
    • Sign Language
    • Multi-sensory teaching
    • Video modeling
    • Social Stories
    • Discrete Trial Training
    • Applied Behavior Analysis
  • All of our “Adapted Aquatic Survival” lessons are one-on-one allowing the instructor to focus on your child and adapt every part of the program to meet the individual needs of your child.
  • We offer continued skill development for our “Survival Program” graduates in either a private, semi-private, or small group environment. Students learn how to transfer their Swim-Float-Swim skills to fun in the water, fitness, stroke and more!
