Learn To Swim Accommodations: Autism Spectrum Swim Lessons

10:00am to 11:15am

Meeting Room: 2A

Partnering with Autism Speaks, the Folsom Aquatic Center has developed a basic Learn to Swim program to meet the needs of participants who are on the Autism Spectrum. During this session, we will discuss the importance of providing service, provide videos demonstrating lessons, share marketing that can be used to support this type of program and we will discuss the need for the program. We’ll also share a participant demonstration of what it may be like to be on the Autism Spectrum. While swim lessons may be a small part of your typical waterpark operation, learning to adapt any of your programs for any special need participant brings great value to your facility and programming. Come learn why it is important to provide services to the special needs population.
