    Sensory Swim®
    Is Helping
    Implement A
    Strong Foundation
    For Our
    Son That 
    Will Enrich
    His Future

    "It is a pleasure to write a reference for Sensory Swim®
    (Ms. Mary & Mr. Andrew) regarding their excellent
    stewardship  as swim instructors, therapists, and 
    our family heroes.

    Their varied resourcefulness and  research-based
    reasoning are assets, which are evident in their
    therapeutic-quality instruction and nurture as it
    relates to my son and his sessions.

    They consistently show a wonderful grasp of the
    techniques and goals relating to my son’s
    development with swim, self-regulation,
    and sportsmanship.

     

    Kevin Showing Off His Independence



    A noteworthy aspect of Sensory Swim’s® current
    experience is working in a diverse, community
    setting.

    I know first -hand how successful Ms. Mary and Mr.
    Andrew are as swim instructors because they 
    warmly welcomed my son, who is currently
    diagnosed with a developmental delay,
    into his first experience of water play-
    and swim.

    Ms. Mary and Mr. Andrew laid the foundation for
    ”learning is powerful and meaningful” in the
    mind and heart of my son, for a lifetime.

    Sensory Swim®
    enjoys the students and communicates
    well with them.

    Their program is not a one size fits all, but is 
    individualized as it relates to the child’s 
    baselines and then achievable goals.

    Sensory Swim® 
    is helping implement a strong foundation
    for our son that will enrich his future.

    After each session, they provide quality feedback and
    offer sound best practices and next steps for the next
    session.

    I see the attributes of patience, positive behavior
    systems,and response to interventions in each
    session.

    This is exemplified by praises, high fives, if the
    stroke is not quite right, another strategy is
    applied, and smiles throughout the 
    sessions.

    Sensory Swim®
    comes highly recommended almost 3 years
    strong from toe in the water to 5 feet and strokes
    (swimming)!

    May their continued contribution to sports, disability,
    ability continue to be a strong success in the global 
    world! "

    To See
    Him Loving
    Swimming And
    Making Progress

    Little Time
    Is Definitely
    Impressive.

    "My grandson Jakob started private swimming lessons two
    months ago with Mary and I couldn't be happier with it. 

    Jakob is 5 and autistic. 

    He attends school, speech, and previously a feeding 
    clinic, and he has had a hard time adjusting to all of 
    them. 

    It took months for him to feel comfortable in school.  

    On his first swim lesson Jakob was hesitant to go into 
    the pool area but by the end of that lesson he didn't
    want to leave.

     

    Pictured Above: Mary & Jakob


    Every week when he sees me packing his swim bag he gets 
    so excited and when we get to the pool he practically pulls 
    me to the door to wait for Mary. 


    He is so happy in the pool and so comfortable with Mary

    She has a very calm approach with him which he really 
    responds to.

    Although Andrew is working with another child while 
    Jakob is having his lesson, he always comes over
    and says hi and high fives Jakob.

    They really seem to enjoy the kids they work with, and 
    I'm convinced that's why Jakob has taken to it so
    quickly.

    In over two years in school the teachers have been 
    unable to find anything that interests Jakob, so to 
    see him loving swimming and making progress in
    so little time is definitely impressive.

    I would and have recommended Sensory Swim®
    .

    Thanks for being there. "

    This Is
    Amazing For
    A Child
    That Didn't
    Ever Put
    His Face
    In The
     Water 

    "Andrew has been giving my son private swimming lessons
    for over a year now.  

    I wasn't sure how long it would take for Nico to learn
    to swim since he was 6 and have never swimmed 
    without a vest.

    I can tell you that not only can he swim now but he can
    go to the bottom of the pool and retrieve a ring! 

     

    Above: Andrew & Nico


    This is amazing for a child that didn't ever put his
    face in the water. 


    Andrew and Mary are exceptional instructors with loads
    of patience.

    They are loving and kind to my sweet special needs
    child and that speaks volumes. 

    I would highly recommend them and Sensory Swim®
    - a God 
    sent and blessing for our family."

    That Constitute
    Water Safety.

    "My son has been going to Andrew for about a year and
    a half.

    He's on the spectrum and as most kids go, he loves the
    water!

    I was terrified hearing stories of kids drowning
    especially since we were going on a trip to
    Mexico and it was pools, oceans galore.

    He joined Sensory Swim®
    a few months prior to the trip
    with the goal of water safety.

    I have to say my trip to Mexico and any other pool
    visits since then have been a pleasure.

     

    Pictured Above: Andrew, Eshan & Mary



    He is completely at ease with all the abilities of
    floating, swimming to the edge etc that
    constitute water safety.

    My younger one had water anxiety even though he is
    typical.

    The anxiety was very vivid and restrictive in that he
    was very afraid of the water and being in the pools.

    He joined his brother for lessons with Mary and he's
    now doing very well and is able to take regular
    swim lessons with other kids his age.

    Sensory Swim®
    is great and Andrew & Mary made all the
    difference for my boys! "

    She Has
    Made So
    Much Progress
    With Mary
    And Is
    Swimming

    "My daughter has been learning to swim with Mary for
    about a year now.

    We have tried private swimming lessons for the last 5
    years with no success.

    She loves the water and we wanted her to learn to swim
    so she could be safe in and around the water.

    She has made so much progress with Mary and is swimming

     

    Katelyn & Mary Having A Blast



    Mary and Andrew are wonderful people who know how to
    teach kids with special needs to swim and be safe in the
    water.

    My daughter is finally able to hold her breath and go
    underwater without choking for the first time after 5 
    years of trying to teach her personally and with
    other professional services.

    I highly recommend Sensory Swim® if you are looking for
    affordable, quality, and  successful private swimming
    lessons for your special needs kids."

    "Some people enjoy the structure and security that 
    comes along with many standard 9-to-5 jobs.

    Others prefer the freedom that is inherent in owning 
    your own business and embrace the financial 
    uncertainty often present in startup 
    endeavors.

    And it's those people like the Sensory Swim®
    team that 
    end up changing the world"

    6-Year
    Old Typically
    Developing Brother


    Swimming lessons with Andrew are the highlight of our 
    week!

    My 4-year old son Calvin, who has been was diagnosed 
    with autism, has made amazing progress in the pool 
    first with Mary, and then Andrew. 

    We started with Mary in June 2014, and then due to a 
    schedule change caused by the pool, switched to 
    Andrew at the beginning of August.

     

    Mary & Calvin Bringing The Smiles



    Both Andrew and Mary are unfailingly patient, kind, 
    upbeat, and have an incredible knack for working 
    with children with special needs.

    Calvin rapidly surpassed the swimming skills of his 
    6-year old typically developing brother and is close 
    to swimming on his own."

    "To put it in plain English: You need to be awesome" 


     
    He Has
    Gained A
    Confidence That
    Goes Beyond
    His Swimming
    Lessons.

    "Our son, Chris, has been taking lessons with Andrew
    for the past year.

    Although Chris loves the water, he didn't have any
    swimming skills or strategies to stay safe in a
    large body of water.

    After a year we are confident that Chris can tread
    water, can swim well enough to get to a safe
    spot, and that he knows his limitations in
    terms of coming into contact with an
    unfamiliar swimming hole.

     

    Andrew & Chris Learning How To Surf!



    Chris absolutely loves the time spent with Andrew in
    the pool.

    He has gained a confidence that goes beyond his
    swimming lessons.

    It is one of his favorite activities and he looks
    forward eagerly to his weekly lesson.

    We give the highest recommendation to Sensory Swim®
    - to
    Andrew and to Mary - who truly love the kids and want to 
    see them succeed."

    Last Week
    My Tears
    Were Full
    Of Joy

    "For over four years our 7-year old son has been taking
    swimming lessons.

    We have been through four or five instructors without
    making any progress.

    That is until he started taking lessons with Sensory
    Swim's® 
    Andrew and Mary.

    We drive one hour each way for once a week lessons.

    Xavier Showing Off His Grin!



    Last week, our son actually dog-paddled across the deep
    end of the pool.

    I have shed lots of tears watching him struggle these
    last four years.

    Last week, my tears were full of joy.

    Andrew and Mary are helping our son to develop
    confidence and a skill that he will have for the
    rest of his life."

    "My toddler has severe CP and we wanted him to work on 
    range of motion and develop motor skills in the water- 
    perhaps even swim one day.

    We found Sensory Swim®
    through a friend with autistic 
    sons who had worked with Mary for a long time.

    She and Andrew are amazing- calm, gentle & reassuring.

    They are devoted to their students.

    I see each of them with other kids before and after my

    My son absolutely loves his classes and Mary, and we are
    grateful for the skills he has learned so far.

    Cannot recommend the program highly enough."
