Drowning is the #1 cause of death in children with autism. The National Autism Society reports that 90% of all deaths in children with autism are due to drowning. Children with autism react to their senses and are driven by impulse. Water is a huge sensory stimulation which draws this attention. That is why it is imperative that children with autism get the proper swim instruction.
SwimRVA Autism Swims is a program, designed specifically for children with autism, and adds to our goal of creating an inclusive aquatics community in Richmond, VA. All of our instructors have been trained and educated on children with ASD.
