What we do
Autism Swim (AS) are national Water Safety and Swimming Specialists in Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). Autism Swim is the peak body in Australia for drowning prevention for those with ASD and/or cognitive deficit.
- We work with swimming instructors and organisations, providing them with training, resources and support so that they are better geared to teach individuals with ASD and cognitive deficit. See our swimming instructor or swim centre page for more information. We also work with schools, not-for-profits, support services, therapists and other aquatics-based organisations.
- Autism Swim is the only organisation to provide training, resources and memberships to parents, so that they can rest assured that they are doing all that they can to mitigate the associated risks pertaining to wandering and drowning. More information on our parent training and membership options can be found here.
- We run a range of different programs around the country which teach our learners vital skills such as water safety and surf survival. For more information on our current programs, or if you would like to discuss us running a program for you, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
