Swing for the Stars offers aquatic therapy services as a unique way to help improve your child’s sensory processing abilities, motor skill development and social skills. Aquatic therapy services are run by an occupational therapy, physical therapist, or speech therapist and run for 8 weeks at a time.
Aquatic therapy is therapy provided in a pool setting. Therapists use the water and specifically designed activities to enhance, restore, maintain, and/or increase a child’s functional abilities. Children will experience an increase in organized movements in the water, which can be translated to land-based activities for an overall improvement in daily functional activities. Water is an environment in which children can move freely. The physical properties of water allow for increased support, increased time for movements, and resistance for strengthening.
