Aquatic Therapy is a skilled treatment method used by occupational and physical therapists to increase a child’s functional abilities. The water’s therapeutic properties of warmth, buoyancy and resistance, combine to create a powerful experience for any child. Aquatic therapy is an effective and fun way to address many types of conditions including sensory integration, anxiety, neurological disorders, and orthopedic issues.

Some benefits of aquatic therapy include:

- Opportunity for social interaction
“N absolutely loves aquatic therapy! He has had swimming lessons in the past but they were always much too distracting with the loud noises of so many classes going on simultaneously on top of having to wait for all the other kids in his group to have a turn. On his first day in the pool with the OT and lifeguard; I already noticed an increase in his eye contact and attention! I am so happy for him to have this wonderful opportunity in such a sensory rich surrounding.”
