Summertime Tips

WATER

Man kids love playing around water, by the beach or at home. This involves some risks to be aware of.

Check out this great info from the Royal Life Saving Australia.

How to keep children safe

And a very useful extract from this other link:

Autism Spectrum Disorder and Drowning

‘People with Autism are at increased risk of drowning. They therefore need to take additional precautions to prevent drowning. In particular, they should never swim alone and should be supervised at all time.’

 

POOL FUN

Children with Autism may feel safer and more confident being in environments they are familiar with. If your child/ren attend weekly swimming lessons at a particular swim centre then we suggest to take them there to have some fun in the pool.
