Special Abilities Program

Just Swimming Syndal, a branch of the Nunawading Swimming Club, runs a Learn to Swim program exclusively for children with special needs such as Autism, Down Syndrome and other developmental disabilities who want to swim but who require more support than they may receive from a mainstream program.

The program is a one on one, 30 minute lesson in a friendly, safe environment, which focuses on the students personal needs and ability.
Swimmers in the program start with the most basic survival skills before moving to stroke technique with the goal to have the special ability swimmers working on the same skills as students in the mainstream program.

Taught by highly qualified Austswim teachers who have worked extensively with children with intellectual disabilities, Just Swimming Syndal provides affordable and much needed individual support to children who because of their challenges, cannot access regular group swimming lessons.
