My 6 year old son has Autism and Sensory Processing Disorder and loves being in water. He has always terrified me because he has no fear. I’ve had him in swim lessons since he was itty bitty but it just wasn’t clicking. A few months ago we attended a birthday party at a pool and it became obvious that something had to be done. I decided to give SafeSplash another try this time doing semi-private lessons and stressing that my son has special needs.
He was placed with a truly wonderful instructor and in a few short weeks she taught my son how to float. I cried when it actually happened! He can paddle, hold his breath and turn over to float on his back. I honestly thought that these were things my son might never learn to do.
Thank you to Ms, Becky in CO at the Smokey Hill/ Gun Club location. I’m so thrilled to have you in my son’s life!
