S.W.I.M. (Swim and Water Instruction Modifications) for children with ASD is a specialty course that encompasses swimming and water instruction for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder.

This five-week course builds confidence in children through learning to swim and water safety in a fun, customized environment. Children attend classes twice per week for four weeks to provide stability and consistency into their routine. All lessons are done on a private, one-on-one basis, one child per instructor. On the fifth week families and students are invited to an open family swim to enjoy the pool and its amenities and to show off their newly acquired skills.

This course can be taken several times and offers a multi-child discount for families enrolling multiple children into a course. Classes will be prorated if they fall on a holiday or other closure. Make-up classes are not done due to the nature of the course and course set-up.

For our fall/winter schedule Natavi will have a total of six course offerings. Each course will serve 6 children with a private lesson twice per week. There are three time slots available. Your time slot will be the same throughout your four week course with a longer time slot available the fifth week for open family swim time.

Please call or email to secure a spot. Six spots are available per course (2 per time slot).
