"My lil man had the best time at sensory swim, it was great to see his confidence grow over the 6 weeks and he can’t wait to go back!I can’t recommend sensory swim enough to parents of children with additional needs, a chance for them to enjoy the water and be themselves."
Helen Stevens, mum to Harley.
"When we first heard about the sensory swim classes we were ecstatic as our son loves swimming and we are always interested in finding new ways to keep him busy during out of school times. After the first session i knew it was a hit. Noah really enjoyed every session and i know he cant wait for more."
Ed Cato, dad to Noah.
"Sophie was really nervous about going and kept begging me not to take her and promising that she would go the next week, however, half way through the lesson she declared how much she now loves swimming lessons and can't wait to do more!! She was so chuffed with how it went today that's she's even decided to try other types of lessons and wants to do guitar lessons like her sister!
The teacher in the pool was truly lovely and really made Sophie feels at ease! Thank you again."
Stefanie Beresford, mum to Sophie.
"Raven has really enjoyed the sensory swim lessons and I felt more at ease around parents who understand Raven's behaviours. The swimming teachers were great and Raven's confidence and skills have improved as a result." Juliet Young, mum to Raven.
"My son really enjoys sensory swim. He is getting a lot more confident in the water. The session is really relaxed which is great for him and fun." Clare Williams, mum to Christopher.
"My two children who are autistic, started these sessions in july 2018. In such a short space of time my son has become so much more confident. From being petrified and literally hugging tight around the neck, he now happily gets himself in and maneuvers himself around the pool, using the side or assistance from myself or Ash the instructor. My daughter is still a little unsure, but is gaining more and more confidence every week, its so great to see. Have to say, Ash is absolutely fantastic with the kids, very patient. Thank you for this amazing opportunity." Rosemary Wells, mum to Eli and Milly.
"My son has thoroughly enjoyed his swimming lessons, he’s made and continues to make amazing progress! Thanks guys!" Kira Elliot, mum to Chace.
" Sensory swim at Waterside, organised by Genevieve has been an extremely successful addition to our adapted timetable for children with SEND needs at Haylands. It is an intrinsic and invaluable experience for the children and parents are very pleased with the provision. Long may it continue!" Haylands Primary School, Ryde.
