therapeutic-quality instruction and nurture as it

They consistently show a wonderful grasp of the

Ms. Mary and Mr. Andrew laid the foundation for
”learning is powerful and meaningful” in the

Sensory Swim® enjoys the students and communicates

Their program is not a one size fits all, but is
individualized as it relates to the child’s

"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
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
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 impressive.
I would and have recommended Sensory Swim®.
Thanks for being there. "

"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!
This is amazing for a child that didn't ever put his
face in the water.
Andrew and Mary are exceptional instructors with loads
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."

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.
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
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! "

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

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.
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."

"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.
Chris absolutely loves the time spent with Andrew in
He has gained a confidence that goes beyond his
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."

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.
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
son's lessons, and can see Mary and Andrew engage
on a deep level with the children.
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."
