The REQUIRED Monthly Special Splash will keep your certified instructors excited, and give them the opportunity to grow with our program. We will be sending them a new video, content and short quiz, monthly on how to combine strategies when addressing multiple roadblocks that swimmers with special needs are having. Each month they will get a new technique to add to their growing toolbox and feel more confident than ever before when working with this population. These are a required part of our curriculum and it is what the re-certification exam is based on.
The certification and access to the e-learning content will be available as long as the monthly Special Splash subscription is active. Our intent is to ensure that your entire Swim Angelfish Certified aquatics team will benefit from the monthly continuing education of these Special Splashes.

Filling a Need
After repeated request of numerous parents, the co- founders committed to developing a swim curriculum for all aquatic professionals. Striving to educate parents, caregivers, swim instructors, aquatic directors, swim school owners, on how to better work with children who have Autism, PDD-NOS and sensory processing issues.
Sensory Processing Disorders
Swim Whisperers® was designed to meet the needs of a growing population with these issues. According to a 2004 study, at least 1 in 20 children’s daily lives are affected by a Sensory Processing Disorder. The CDC released findings that raised estimates about the number of children in the U.S. with an Autism Spectrum Disorder diagnosis to 1 in 65.
Arming Our Children
According to the Red Cross: “About 3,500 Americans drown each year, averaging ten deaths per day. More than one in five fatal drowning victims are children 14 and younger.” What’s more, drowning has been identified as a leading cause of accidental death for children and adults with Autism. These are the statistics that keep us up at night, and motivated us to offer our Swim Whisperers program to all aquatic professionals and the swim community at large.
