Swimming Evaulation

A few months ago I had the opportunity of meeting a young guy Sean at a parent information group @ The Spastic Centre, he also has Hemiplegia CP. Was very encouraging to hear him have such a positive outlook on life...not to mention a wicked sense of humour. While he was there he told us he was an Instructor for the Learn to Swim for the disabled program and I took one of his business cards.

I rang him 2 weeks ago and today Violet had her swimming evaluation with him. She went very well considering she has only been in a pool for the first time on our recent holiday and besides that watched Emily at her swimming lessons every week.

She starts weekly individual lessons from February 09!

Oh wow! That'll be so great!! I keep on hearing about how amazing swimming is as a therapy - yay for Violet!

How neat! It looks like Violet is truly enjoying herself. :)
Hydrotherapy is great for so many reasons. I'd love to hear how she does with her lessons.
