Approximately 50% of all savants have autism, while only about five to ten percent of individuals with autism possess extraordinary savant skills.

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.
