Swim School: Swimming With Autism

Ten-year-old Daniel is non-verbal and on the autism spectrum. However, his diagnosis has not stopped his family from giving him the opportunities that all children can have, such as the chance to swim. For the past six years, Daniel has been working with a swim school to learn not only how to swim, float, and have fun in the water, but also, how to communicate.

Watch as the co-owner of the swim school describes Daniel’s successes over the years, and how swimming has improved his listening skills and ability to follow directions!
