"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.

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. "

"The couple draws from their colorful educational backgrounds to impart 
indispensable knowledge that may prevent many autistic children and 
adults from drowning."

"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 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."

"Sensory Swim is helping children with autism fight back against the
dangers of wandering one extremely enjoyable, exceedingly effective,
perfectly fitted, private swim lesson at a time"

"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!!"

"The thing that really shines through is their love and passion for working
with special needs kids "
"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

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 private swimming lessons for your special needs kids."

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

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! "

"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 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
