Swim Lessons for Children and Adults with Autism


POAC is partnering with Schafer Sports again this year to provide swim lessons and water safety programming to families of children (of all ages) with autism. The program will be held at Schafer Sports Center (Ewing, NJ)  in six week sessions starting this September, 2019. Sessions will be held on Wednesdays, Thursdays, or Sundays.  So, if you choose a Sunday session, you will attend every Sunday for 6 weeks from the Sunday you begin. There is a one time $20 registration fee for each six- week session, all other fees will be paid for by POAC and We Care Special Sports. The sessions will run through the entire 2019/2020 school year and registration starts now. Sessions begin the week of September 29th.

The program will be for parent/caregiver and child with autism (of any age) and will require at least one parent/caregiver to be in the water during the class. Please note the pool is only 4 feet deep. The classes are scheduled to be half an hour long. All participants that are NOT toilet trained will be required to wear a swim diaper and a reusable rubber or cloth diaper as a means to avoid accidents in the pool. Please note that if your child doesn’t have the required pool wear, they will not be able to participate. Please remember to bring a towel, change of clothes and goggles/ear plugs if that makes your child more comfortable. We do have changing rooms for your use.

The classes are limited in space and there is no age limit.  There are 4 sessions to choose from. Wednesday sessions are at 6:55pm.  Thursday sessions are at 5:45pm or 6:55pm.  Sunday sessions begin at 10:50am. Each class runs for 30 minutes. When registering, choose the classes noted as SN Swim Parent/Child
