We all have people in our lives that we love and support. Our best friends get the best of us. We would do anything for them. We help them when they are in need. We encourage them onward. We act as a cheering squad. We compliment them. We are there on the good days and there on the bad days. We drop what we can in order to be with them when they need. We love them. But how do we often treat ourselves?
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.
