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.
Please note that currently iSwim Academy has no teacher trained to conduct the lessons using the Halliwick method.
