Water safety for all abilities.
Our advocacy program is dedicated to helping people with Down syndrome and/or other disabilities gain the water safety skills to be independent and safe around water.
Supporting Swim Education for People with Disabilities
Drowning is the number 1 cause of death for ages 1-4. For those with disabilities, such as autism and Down syndrome, that more than doubles. This is why we aim to reduce drowning statistics and improve swim education for all individuals with disabilities. Every individual with a disability deserves to learn the water safety skills that can save their life!
