Texas Swim Academy has partnered with Autism Speaks, the world’s leading autism and science advocacy organization.
As a new recipient of the Autism Speaks Swimming and Water Safety Scholarship Program, Texas Swim Academy will now begin awarding Adaptive Aquatics program scholarships to swimmers with autism spectrum disorders. Our goal has always been to provide all families in the Houston and Katy area with access to result-oriented swimming programs, including families of children with special needs. With this new scholarship program in place, we continue our passion for sharing the essential life skills of water safety and swimming to even more students.
Founded in February 2005 by Bob and Suzanne Wright, grandparents of a child with autism, Autism Speaks is dedicated to funding research for the causes, preventions, treatments, and cures for autism. The organization seeks to increase awareness of autism spectrum disorders and advocating for the needs of individuals with autism and their families.
Autism Speaks’ mission aims to change the future for all of those who struggle with autism spectrum disorders. Texas Swim Academy is proud to share this same mission and collaborate with this organization to further raise awareness and provide support for those with autism spectrum disorders.
About the Texas Swim Academy Adaptive Aquatics Swimming Program
Texas Swim Academy offers year-round swimming lessons and provides special programs to fit specific needs of every parent and child. Children participating in the Adaptive Aquatics program have the opportunity to receive one-on-one attention from certified instructors who use repetition and consistency as a guide to achieve swimming goals. With an understanding that swimming lessons are essential to developing key areas such as muscle strength, physical endurance, self-control, confidence, social skills, and improved behavioral outcomes, Texas Swim Academy makes an effort to always offer individualized attention and adapt to each individual child’s needs.
