At Swim Safe Aquatics, we understand you go through MANY struggles during the day. Finding a place to teach your amazing child to swim, shouldn't be one of them! We understand your child and will provide the best possible lesson for him or her. We are here to help!
With not only experience but education and training under our belt, we strive to serve the special needs community with the very best instruction. Every lesson is catered to every student! No two lessons are ever the same as no two students are ever the same. And we make sure to bring out every child's unique abilities. With our experience, training, education, and love for the Special Needs community, we can teach students of all ages and all abilities
If you don't see a class length that fits for you? Want MORE time?
We have been working with Special Needs children, adolescents & adults for over 20 years! April, the founder of Swim Safe Aquatics passion started in 3rd grade when she started volunteering with the kindergarten special needs class. Her passion grew throughout the years as she continued to dedicate her time to the special needs classes & attended their activities. When she started teaching swim lessons in 1993, she immediately asked to take on all her mentors' special needs students. She took her training even further by volunteering to learn, train, and teach at her local community hospital's swim program. Since then she has been the lead special needs instructor at several swim schools, trained instructors on how to teach special needs & trained other swim schools' instructors on how to teach Special Needs & Adaptive Swim Lessons.
In 2003, the owner graduated with her degree in Special Needs Education & in 2004, became a Physical Therapist Assistant. A year later, she enrolled to be an OTA and graduated top of her class!
April continues to grow her education by earning certificates in Sensory Processing Disorder, and working alongside ABAs, OTs, PTs & Special Need Teachers.
All of our instructors have been specially trained and we take great pride in all of our instructors having a love and passion for teaching Special Needs students. Each instructor has their own area of expertise and your student will ONLY be placed with the appropriate instructor.
Mrs April can also use basic ASL & Miss Miranda & Skylar are fluent in ASL
