Clayfield Swimming is so proud to be an Autism Swim Approved Centre


What does this mean?

Autism Swim is the only certifying body specific to

autism and aquatics worldwide. Autism Swim and Clayfield Swimming

work closely to deliver the best possible outcomes for

the swimmers within our service.

Our staff receive training, resources and support in

order to understand the differing needs and wants of

the swimmers with other abilities; and to teach them

in a way that is most conducive to their needs.

The team at Autism Swim assist us to target

three key areas:

  1. Water Therapy

Ensuring our swimmers are comfortable and happy to be

in and around the water. This sets them up with the best

chance of learning.

  1. Water Safety

Water safety is imperative for every learner, however even

more so for our swimmers who have a decreased ability to

perceive risk and danger.

  1. Learn to Swim

Adapting and modifying our teaching techniques to ensure

that we cater for all different learning styles and abilities.

We work toward individual goals, rather than trying to fit

learners into pre-determined ‘levels’.

We have made the ongoing commitment to

education, and we are confident that this resonates

in the work that we are undertaking with our swimmers.
