Aqua~Fit works with many families of children with special needs.  We find that the warm water, structure of the learn to swim program with songs and games in a safe, nurturing environment allows the child to experience a whole new environment of having  fun while achieving swimming skills, exercise and safety.

their own pace, personalized and goal oriented.

 

Our Goal:

Aqua~Fitís program goal is to provide the special child
and their families moments of joy, laughter, fun and time
away in a fun, safe and warm salt water environment.

 

The Aquatic Environment is excellent for the Special Child:

     Improves flexibility, coordination and range of motion

        Strengthens and tones muscles

        Builds self esteem

        Learning new behaviors and skills

        Promotes fun and play for child as well as for the family

 

Through participation in the Aqua~Fit program
the Special Child will learn to feel more positive
in an environment that promotes success mixed
with love, fun and play.  The Special Child is able
to forget about their limitations while learning
new behaviors, skills and a fun play/exercise time.
Aqua~Fit develops each class time specifically for
your childís needs  and abilities.

  Autism Awareness 

In order to highlight the growing need for concern and awareness about autism, the Autism Society has been celebrating National Autism Awareness Month since the 1970s. The United States recognizes April as a special opportunity for everyone to educate the public about autism and issues within the autism community.

Autism is a complex developmental disability that typically appears during the first three years of life and affects a personís ability to communicate and interact with others. Autism is defined by a certain set of behaviors and is a "spectrum disorder" that affects individuals differently and to varying degrees. There is no known single cause for autism, but increased awareness and funding can help families today.

Know the Signs: Early Identification Can Change Lives

Autism is treatable. Children do not "outgrow" autism, but studies show that early diagnosis and intervention lead to significantly improved outcomes.

Here are some signs to look for in the children in your life:

  • Lack of or delay in spoken language
  • Repetitive use of language and/or motor mannerisms (e.g., hand-flapping, twirling objects)
  • Little or no eye contact
  • Lack of interest in peer relationships
  • Lack of spontaneous or make-believe play
  • Persistent fixation on parts of objects

Join the Autism Society in getting involved with the autism community this April.
