Special Abilities Program

Our Excellent Elephants program is designed for kids with altered learning needs, who may process the world differently, and need flexible teachers who use child-focused methods.

These private swimming lessons are specifically designed for kiddos with unique needs; including but not limited to Autism, Down Syndrome, ADHD, physical disabilities, or severe sensory impairment.

We believe every child should have the opportunity regardless of age or ability to become a happy, safe, confident swimmer. It can be difficult for parents of children who have a special need to find activities that focus on the child’s ability rather than their disability. That’s why Swimming Safari has specialized instructors who have experience teaching children with a variety of unique needs. This adaptive aquatic program will focus on safety while teaching the basics of swimming and working with your child’s individual physical and developmental needs.

In these private classes, we will focus on progressing your student in two main areas (Swim Proficiency and Group Learning Skills).
