This is specialised water therapy for disabled children or adults conducted by the Halliwick method. The swimmer will learn through a series of games and fun activities about water confidence & balance.
The Halliwick Philosophy is:
“To teach water happiness and enjoyment of the water and encourage one’s ability not disability”
The long term goal is to become an independent swimmer. These lessons are taught by a qualified swim teacher and Halliwick instructor.
These are mainly intended for children and adults:
• with childhood cerebral palsy, dystrophic diseases, meningomyelocele,
• with Down’s syndrome,
• with autism
• with ADHD, difficulties in behaviour and learning,
• with mental disabilities and other neurological diseases.
*Swimmers have to be able to walk with any help because of the restrictions of the facility.
