Aquatics

Erica initially saw the need for a pool based occupational therapy program to meet the needs of children with autism in September 2011.  The program developed from 5 children meeting once a week to 60+ children participating in summer aquatic intensives that meet three days per week! 

The program now takes place at The Reef Indoor Water Park.  There is a summer session as well as a winter session that typically begins in January and runs 8-12 weeks.

Aquatic based occupational therapy sessions address: 
  • motor and sensory processing skills
  • self-regulation
  • visual scanning
  • attention to task, body awareness, motor planning, balance, postural control, play, and social skills
  • and much more! 

Our therapists have all participated in additional education to work with children of all ages and ability levels in the pool environment.
