Children with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) are 160 times more likely to drown than their neurotypical peers.
This often happens after they wander or abscond, which we know 50% of individuals with ASD do.
An array of barriers often exist in terms of individuals with ASD being able to participate successfully in aquatic programs.

How to prepare for Swim Lessons
Keep a designated swim bag at home. It should contain a swimsuit, goggles, and a towel. Keeping these items in bag will ensure you won't forget anything.
Give yourself time to change and use the bathroom before class starts. Arrive 5 minutes before class time.
Knowing what class you are in and where to meet your instructor will help get class to start on-time.
Know the pool rules.
