Drowning is the leading cause of death for children and adults with Autism. However, Swim With Mr. Blue is working to change that statistic. Our staff is dedicated to working with all children to teach them how to become safe swimmers, including those with special needs, so that they can draw upon the skills we teach them throughout their lives whenever they are near water. Children on the spectrum, as well as any children with physical or mental disabilities also deserve the chance to embrace the many benefits and joy that swimming has to offer.

Parkland and Coral Springs children on the Autistic spectrum achieve great success with swim lessons at Swim With Mr. Blue!

All swim lessons are adaptable for swimmers with special needs. The team at Swim With Mr. Blue is experienced in working with children on the Autistic spectrum, with Cerebral Palsy, and Downs Syndrome, as well as other special needs or developmental delays. Our lessons include distinctive strategies that work well with children who have special needs, and we also include generous amounts of patience, encouragement and love. Your child does not have to be fully verbal to join our program. We welcome your child with open arms, and our certified swim instructors work with each child individually, and are skilled in determining how to make your child feel comfortable in the water in order to encourage their optimal potential for learning. Research has shown that the stimulating effects of swimming instruction have the potential to increase alertness, concentration, perception and intelligence.  Social and emotional improvements, as well as physical and developmental advances have been documented through swim instruction as well. Swim With Mr. Blue will help your child achieve their safe swimming goals!

Swim With Mr. Blue is proud of its team of certified swim instructors, who are highly trained to work with children, including those with special needs.  Our instructors are able to determine each child’s challenges, fears, and interests. Visual supports, repetition, flexibility, and encouragement are some of the tools used in Swim With Mr. Blue’s instruction in Parkland and Coral Springs. Our swimmers learn in a positive and welcoming environment, and private lessons ensure that children progress at their own pace, and move on to the next level only when they are ready. The lessons are personalized, because every child is different, and our skilled instructors understand that.  Thiscustomized instruction allows our instructors to help your child develop skills, conquer their fears, and build self-confidence.
