Video Series Looks at Swimming for Individuals with Autism

January 08, 2014

A video series called "Real Look Autism" looks at the lives of individuals on the autism spectrum. There most recent video looks at Daniel, a 6-year-old nonverbal boy with autism, as he learns to swim with the help of his instructor. The video includes information about ways that you could help instruct those on the spectrum in the water through social stories. 

Last April, we highlighted Real Look Autism for their "Art Therapy" video which you can find here. For more information on swimming, you can find  the Swimming Lessons Tool from the National Autism Association's Big Red Safety Tool Kit here.
