The SMART Way to “Push” Little Swimmers

August 11, 2017

“You can't put a limit on anything.
The more you dream, the farther you get.”

-Michael Phelps

Unfortunately, many little swimmers often come to the pool with a limited view of their own abilities.

Autism Awareness Month: What You Can Do To Help

April 28, 2017

It is truly important to Brian and me at SafeSplash-Austin that we can help EVERYONE learn how to swim, regardless of their fears or challenges. Autism is a complicated and often misunderstood disease that can isolate children and keep them from taking part in activities that many of us take for granted. Every child on this planet is unique and has their own strengths and weaknesses. The same is so for children with ASD (Autism Spectrum Disorder). While their condition may make it a bit more difficult to discover what makes them tick, that extra investment of time and patience is well worth the effort.
