ASD Sensory Programme – Liverpool Swimming Academy

What are customers say – Liverpool Swimming Academy

“Words annot express how well my son has done since his one to one sessions with Kathy. Before these sessions he had tried group swimming lessons. However, at the time he just couldn’t cope with that kind of setting. Kathy, with her approach and strategies (along with some funky sensory equipment my son loves) has had my son swimming underwater and on his back. Tonight he got a certificate and seeing how happy this made him (even posed for a pic….never happens lol) only emphasised that I had made a good decision in trying him with Kathy’s sessions. Thank you and cannot recomend enough xx” Clair Horrocks

The Benefit of our ASD Swimming Programme


The pace of the lessons is dictated by the child’s needs with plenty of opportunities for children to explore the sensory feel of the warm water.

The swimming instructor gives attention solely to the individuals often complex needs.

Swimming skills are presented to the children in small incremental steps and practised repeatedly until the child feels at ease and is ready to move onto the next step.

Activities and skills are introduced slowly so the individual has time to process the information before moving onto the next stage.

Underwater work

One of the greatest challenges when learning to swim for children with ASD and sensory issues is underwater work. To overcome fears, we gently guide the children through this process from blowing bubbles in the water through to retrieving objects from the pool floor.

“Once the children feel at ease with going underwater we have difficulty keep them above the surface:)”

Term time lessons are delivered mid week after school between 4pm and 7pm (subject to availablity). 

Mainstream (integration) –  £8.50 per lessons – paid in advance of a 8 – 10 week cycle

Small group sensory lessons – £12.00 per lesson – paid in advance on a 6 week cycle

One to  one – £20.00 per lesson – paid in advance on a calendar month basis
