Swimming Lessons for Special Needs
Mobile Swimming Lessons for Children and Adults with Special Needs in Sydney
The team of Nereids Aquatic Coaching is immensely proud of working with children or adults requiring attention due to any kind of physical or intellectual disability. We also take great pleasure in our knowledge that, through our highly-individualized, one-on-one coaching, special needs children may reap the multiple physical and emotional benefits of swimming, as well as achieve many more things besides. Whether it enhances physical strength, boosts confidence or helps pick up some valuable life skills, we see swimming as an activity that can bring out the hero in children or adults of any ability.
Swimming has immense benefits for children and adults with special needs. A non-impact activity that helps you get fit without the risk of injury, it can build up physical strength, enhance social interaction and grant any child or adult with a sense of empowerment. Committed to providing excellence in all areas of our coaching, we can help you or your child make the most of its benefits for the body and mind. Just ask any of our special needs learners how swimming has helped them become more confident both in the pool and on land.
We are Disability Trained and certified to teach people with physical or intellectual disabilities. By adapting to the learner’s needs and physical or attitudinal difficulties, we deliver individualized, one-on-one lessons that can be stimulating, fun and hugely rewarding. Through enduring patience, understanding and careful guidance, we help your child to improve their coordination, physical fitness and confidence, all with an activity as fun and relaxing as swimming. We are just as inspired by the image of your own swimming, smiling child as you are!
We are certified Teachers of Swimming and Water Safety and place every emphasis on making swimming a safe, pleasant experience - your child will be in the safest of hands!

Swimming Lessons for Children and Adults with Autism
Children and adults with autism can benefit from swimming coaching in more than one way. Apart from providing essential water survival skills, it can help individuals with autism come to grips with an activity that eases repetitive behaviours, provides an opportunity for social contact, increases their attention span and reduces the risk of heart disease and/or obesity in later life.
Physical exercise and the rhythmic movements associated with swimming can distract people with autism in a similar way to the stereotypical behaviours used by the same individuals in an effort to ease the discomfort of sensory over-stimulation. In addition, swimming can help your child improve their cognitive processing, speech, coordination and self-esteem.
We should like every child to become an efficient swimmer and pick up on skills that will accompany him/her for the rest of his life. Through our one-on-one coaching, adults and children with autism can reap multiple physical and intellectual rewards and discover the pleasure of swimming with the help of a private coach. Contact Nereids Aquatic Coaching, and discover how much difference we can make to the life of a child or adult with autism!
Swimming Lessons for Children and Adults with Cerebral Palsy
Swimming is a fantastic exercise for anyone with cerebral palsy and related disorders leading to motor function problems. A non-impact exercise that can relieve muscle stiffness or pain, it may also assist coordination, weight loss and decrease spasticity, eventually leading to more independence.
Our work coaching children with cerebral palsy has been a great source of inspiration -teaching swimming to any child has innumerable benefits, but teaching swimming to a child with cerebral palsy is one of the most rewarding experiences a swim coach is likely to encounter. We love seeing children with motor function difficulties take to the water, achieve greater coordination and discover the pleasure of being free from the constraints of gravity. Have your child join our team of special learners and let us help him/her become the best swimmer they can be!
Swimming Lessons for Children and Adults with Down Syndrome
Few activities are more relaxing than being in water and swimming is considered a great way to aid the development of motor skills for children with Down Syndrome, as well as have them experience the sheer pleasure of floating in water.
If you are keen to see your own child be as free and relaxed as never before, and wish to entrust his/her coaching to an instructor who will treat your child only with understanding, patience and respect, call Nereids Aquatic Coaching and schedule a lesson. We are keen, and able, to help your child’s motor skills and water confidence grow!
