Inclusive Swimming Lessons
About Sensory Sensitive Lessons
These 30-minute classes are run outside of mainstream hours, for children aged 5 to 14 years of age. They are run with teachers who are very familiar with the needs of sensory sensitive swimmers.
When lessons are running, lights will be low, there will be no music, the resources used to teach will be simple and signage will be up asking for a quiet atmosphere.
Clear signs will be used by the swim teachers to communicate to students what is happening now, next, and later in the lesson. Our swim teachers will also be comfortable with creating a routine for children attending the classes.
Students will start with a one-to-one session, with students becoming familiar with the programme.
Students will then either join a group with classes of 3 students to one teacher or continue with one-to-ones at $20 per session.
Sensory Swim classes will run weekly during the school term.
Tuesday, 2- 2.30, and 2.30 – 3pm at Greerton Aquatic centre
Friday 2 -2.30 and 2.30 – 3pm at Baywave Aquatic centre
