"Andrew has been giving my son swim
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

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!

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

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

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

The Best

"Best best decision ever .

They are indeed the best swim team on
the planet .

Rajeev loves Andrew and Mary and we look
forward to meet them every week .

I feel lucky and blessed to have our son
on this team"

Definitely Impressive

"My grandson Jakob started 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.

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

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

I would and have recommended Sensory
Swim .

Thanks for being there. "

Develop & Challenge

"Sensory Swim is AWESOME!

Prior to Sensory Swim, my special needs
son had swimming lessons with
another instructor for about 6
months,and in that time, my
son made little progress
with swimming

At Sensory Swim, after just 2 months,
the instructors have taught my son to
swim independently in the deep
end of the pool with no flotation
devices or assistance.


The instructors at Sensory Swim are
experienced, enthusiastic, and
caring and they have helped
develop and challenge my
son beyond what I thought

I HIGHLY recommend Sensory Swim in every

A Phenomenal Job

"Just a huge shout out to Sensory Swim
and what a phenomenal job they have
done with our 2 boys. 

We had been trying unsuccessfully to get
them to swim for over 2 yrs and within a
few months they can both fully swim
and Christian is even starting to do
the backstroke!

Thanks Guys!!"

Change Of Heart

"I’m dropping you a quick line to let
you know that Kyle has had a
change of heart.

Every year for the past three or four
years Kyle has been required to
fill out a multiple choice 
questionnaire and write a brief
narrative at school about his
favorite sport.

For the past several years his choice
has been the same – basketball.

Well this time around when filling out
the questionnaire, he made it very
clear that his previous selections are
no longer valid and swimming is
now his new favorite sport

Kyle truly loves his Friday sessions and
looks forward to laps in the pool with
his favorite instructor – Andrew!

Thanks for all you do.

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

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

We drive one hour each way for once a

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
and reassuring.

They are devoted to their students.

I see each of them with other kids
before and after my son's
lessons, and can see
Mary and Andrew
engage on a deep
level with the

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

All The Difference

"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

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

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! "

Dangers Of Wandering

autism fight back against the dangers
of wandering one extremely enjoyable,
exceedingly effective, perfectly fitted,

Extremely Happy

"Sensory Swim is by far the best program
that I have ever enrolled my son in.  

He's only been enrolled for 3 months,
but he absolutely loves going to his
lessons, and wishes that they were
longer than the half hour!

Devin has had one on one lessons at the
Y and got along well with the instructor as
he does with everyone, but the 
connections seemed out of obligation
versus pure joy for the service that was
being offered.

Unlike Sensory Swim who obviously enjoy
teaching, cares for the children, and want
everyone to be successful.

The lessons can be fun and innovative,
but is also very effective.

We are extremely happy with Andrew and
Mary's commitment, patience, love and
pride for what they do, respect for
everyone, and the love between them,
which makes this an exceptionally well
rounded program just for us!

The children also feels a sense of pride
from their achievements, big or small.

If you are looking for a safe, friendly,
family environment, then I highly
recommend this program to
anyone who has a child with
special needs and who want their
children to be safe in and around
the water.

Sensory Swim = AWESOME!"

Tamara - Windsor Mill, Maryland     


"We first tried group swimming lessons
when my grandson was five years old .

He hated the classes and was scared of
getting in the pool.

I had heard about Sensory Swim in
Maryland but could not find a
comparable program in
Virginia where we live.

Later, we tried a few months of private
swimming lessons at the local YMCA.

My grandson who has sensory processing
was always cold in the pool and
did not make any progress.

Luckily, a few months ago I discovered
that Mary and Andrew began giving
classes in Sterling ,Virginia and we
were able to enroll my grandson in
their program .

He is now eight years old and for the
first time he loves his weekly
swimming lessons.

Both Mary and Andrew are patient,
innovating and make their
lessons to be fun.

It is obvious that they really care for
the children they teach.

My grandson is proud of his progress and
has a lot of fun.

We are extremely happy we found Sensory
Swim and I recommend this program
highly to anyone who has a child with
special needs."

An Incredible Experience

"Our adult daughter with Down Syndrome
started lessons with Mary at Sensory
Swim about a year ago, and it has been
an incredible experience for her.

One of the first things we noticed was
that she was looking right into Mary's
face and smiling most of the time she
was in the water.

Laughing is also a big part of her

For someone who doesn't show her
emotions very openly, that really
stood out!

When she started lessons, she was afraid
of deep water, very hesitant to put her face
in the water, and hesitant to try much of
anything without holding on to someone
or something.

But Mary's patience and expertise have
brought her to where she will try
almost anything.

She frequently puts her face in
the water, dives in from the
side of the pool, and was even
swimming on her back by

I am amazed at her progress and can't
wait to see what new thing she will do
each week!

Not only is she making progress in
learning to swim, she is gaining a
lot of confidenc
e in herself and
what she can accomplish.

We are so grateful to Mary and Andrew
for their input into our daughter's life!

So Much Progress

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

We have tried private 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!

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 swim lessons for your
special needs kids."

Love & Passion

Comes Highly Recommended

"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

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

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! "

They Are True Masters

"Laurence is an 8-year-old autistic boy
who loves physical activity.

He has always liked being in the water,
but has never liked to get his head

Laurence has overcome all of that thanks
to his special needs swimming lessons
at Sensory Swim with Andrew and Mary.

By slowly and patiently working with
Laurence they have never run out
of ideas on how to teach
Laurence to swim.

Laurence first learned to do the crawl.

Next he learned to tread water and to
float on his back.

Laurence does not like to wear goggles,
and in the beginning when Laurence’s
eyes got water in them he was always
rubbing them.

In time he learned to get over this
and now he goes under water
and comes to the surface with
no signs of being bothered by
the water.

They slowly gained his trust, teaching
him to dive into the water alone which
he now enjoys doing all the time.

After about 10 months of one-half
hour per week lessons, we
lengthened his lesson to
one hour per week after
which he started to
progress rapidly in
his water skills.

Currently, Laurence is working on
developing his swimming

I have watched Andrew and Mary work with
special needs children, and I am very
impressed with their dedication and
ability to think out of the box.

They are true masters in what they do to
teach children like Laurence swimming
