The Pool Exercise programmes are provided by the physio team and are designed around an individual’s needs.
Every session is motivating and enjoyable and offers a wide range of benefits such as:
Cardio-respiratory, fitness, working on high and low muscle tone, helping balance and posture, body and spatial awareness.
Communication can be enhanced with eye contact and verbalising and as the goals are achievable, it helps with confidence, self-image and a feeling of well-being.
Above all – the children really engage as the sessions are designed to be fun!
Class teams see a direct impact in class often immediately after a session.
“When J returns from their pool exercise they are alert but physically more balanced and stable which allows them to focus on their learning rather than being challenged by their physical instability”.
