Individuals with autism tend to be diverse. Therefore, it is difficult to use words such as all or none when describing this group.
Structured Swim Lessons
Autism Services has joined with the YMCA to offer swimming opportunities to children and teens with ASD. We will be teaching YMCA Swim Levels which differ in name but are equivalent to Red Cross lessons. Participants in this program should be able to participate in and follow directions within a structured lesson. Participants will be grouped with a swimming instructor and supported by Autism Services program workers.
Three different swim times are available, with participants grouped by age.
