What is aquatic therapy?
Aquatic therapy is perfect for children who are just starting to learn about water – getting used to the sensation, wanting to learn about being safe in the water, or for kids who absolutely love the water. It can be used to facilitate regulation and engagement in a way that land-based therapy doesn’t, supporting children to work towards their OT goals and have fun doing it!
Goals and skills worked on include, but aren’t limited to:
- Gross motor skills
- Fine motor skills
- Social skills
- Community participation
- Water safety
- Sensory and emotional regulation
- Following instructions, and
- Transitioning skills.
Our Aquatic Therapy Program supports children on the autism spectrum to work towards their individual goals, while helping them to develop social skills, functional skills, community engagement, play skills and much more — all while having lots of fun!
