Aquatic Therapy for Children with Special Needs
What is Aquatic Therapy?
Who doesn’t love the weightless feeling of floating in a pool, letting the water carry you effortlessly? Now think of the countless hours that your child will splash about and play in the bath - the majority of children find true joy in being in water from an early age!
Whether you choose to relax and float about, or engage in more active play, water allows for a wide range of therapeutic activities and benefits that makes it an ideal setting for therapy to occur.
Don’t worry - it’s not necessary to have an Olympic-sized pool with expensive technology to obtain positive outcomes! Even in a small, basic pool, therapists can provide meaningful, personalized treatment that is based on each individual’s needs and/or interests.
