Hydrotherapy is a valuable experience for students who need an individualised program to assist in flexibility and muscle tone without going underwater.
Floatation devices provide buoyancy and a safe, relaxing environment for the students to work on stretching, kicking, standing and floating within the weightlessness of the water.
Pool noodles and floatation belts also assist some students to access the outdoor pools to develop beginner swim skills and water safety awareness.
This is a highly motivating program and in addition to the physical and educational benefits, students are developing enjoyment of an activity that hopefully will continue to be a lifelong recreation for them.
Many thanks go to our group of dedicated volunteers, who add great value to the program and provide individualised assistance for each student.
