is proud to be an
Autism Swim Approved Centre
What does this mean?
Autism Swim is the only certifying body specific to autism and aquatics worldwide. Autism Swim and Scot Pro Swim School work closely to deliver the best possible outcomes for the swimmers within our service.
Our staff receive training, resources and support in order to understand the differing needs and wants of the swimmers with other abilities; and to teach them in a way that is most conducive to their needs.
The team at Autism Swim assist us to target three key areas:
Water Therapy: Ensuring our swimmers are comfortable and happy to be in and around the water. This sets them up with the best chance of learning.
Water Safety: Water safety is imperative for every learner, however even more so for our swimmers who have a decreased ability to perceive risk and danger.
Learn to Swim: Adapting and modifying our teaching techniques to ensure that we cater for all different learning styles and abilities. We work toward individual goals, rather than trying to fit learners into pre-determined ‘levels’.
We have the made the ongoing commitment to education, and we are confident that this resonates in the work that we are undertaking with our swimmers. For more information about Autism Swim and the services they provide, please visit their website:
