North Point Shopping Center RestonKaren: Do you think swimming or aquatic therapy is appropriate for my special needs kid? I live in the North Point section of Reston and am close to many indoor pools.

Steve: Absolutely, positively without equivocation. In general, the swimming community is Get your kids in the water now!the most supportive group of families we have come across in the 17 years that we have been involved with kids sports in Fairfax County. The Special needs volunteers are as you can imagine...outstanding human beings.

I love this even if it doesn't look like it



Your child does not need to be involved in competitive Special Olympics programs to physically and mentally benefit from aquatic training. For some reason, water has a special power, it is almost spiritual. It has a calming effect on children when they are introduced to it in the right way.

The following information was taken directly from Fairfax County park web page on Adaptive Aquatics: Click here to view.



Adapted Aquatics

"The Park Authority's award-winning Adapted Aquatics is an individualized swimming and water activity Shortly, I will not need these floaties!program for customers with physical and developmental disabilities.
