Rapidswim’s Learn to Swim programs are swimming lessons for people of all ages with an integration difficulty, who require more support than they can obtain from a regular learn to swim program. Lessons are built around developing water awareness, confidence, safety and basic swimming skills.
The aim of Rapidswim’s Learn to Swim program is to give participants the skills to transition into community based swimming options. This might be mainstream group lessons or simply being able to safely go to the beach or local pool.
The Rapidswim Learn to Swim program offers:
- An instructor to student ratio of 1:1 or 2:1 based on the needs of each individual
- Lessons tailored to the goals of each participant
- Qualified swimming Instructors with patience, passion and a welcoming spirit
This program not only teaches swimming, but also various life skills including communication skills, social skills and water safety and awareness.
Inclusive Sport SA Instructors utilise best practice techniques in assisting children with specialised needs such as the use of visual communication tools and provide support with transition in and out of the pool as required.
Our Instructors work specifically with families to support personal and NDIS goals and complete quarterly reports to outline aims and to record progress.
Learn to Swim and the NDIS – The NDIS will not cover the cost of participating in sport and recreation activities such as swimming lessons. However if 1:1 support is required to participate in a swimming lesson, the NDIS may cover the additional cost for individualised support. For more information CLICK HERE
