Autism Swim (AS) are national Water Safety and Swimming Specialists for individuals with Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD).
Drowning is among the leading causes of death in individuals with ASD. Over 90% of total death reports in children with ASD under 14 was a result of accidental drowning.1
AS is run by Autism Specialists and Swimming Teachers who understand the complexities of ASD and what support mechanisms are necessary to educate individuals on water safety, and equip them with the necessary skills to be confident in the water. Autism Swim’s aim is to lower the statistics of drowning deaths in the ASD population group, imparting knowledge on how individuals with ASD process and acquire skill-sets, in a fun and supportive environment.
Autism Swim is the first swim company in Australia run by Autism Specialists, dedicated solely to individuals with Autism.
