Sensory Enhanced Aquatics
Our aquatics program is appropriate for children with sensory processing difficulties, developmental disorders, as well as disorders of the bones, joints, and muscles. Our Sensory Splash program uses a warm water pool, a multi-sensory approach to explore senses in water for sensory integration and modulation.
Sensory Splash is designed to increase the child’s comfort of being in the water while working on important therapeutic components and traditional land goals.
