KickStart Swimming Program

The KickStart Program is designed for children with autism, communication difficulties, sensory processing difficulties and developmental delay. Sunbury Community Health trains swim instructors and gives resources to create a supportive pool environment for children with specific learning needs.

KickStart swimming lessons are designed to assist children to develop skills in:

  • Water familiarisation: Becoming comfortable in the pool environment and entering the water in a calm manner.
  • Water safety: Entering the water safely, floating and moving to the edge of the pool.
  • Breath control: Blowing bubbles, closing the mouth in water and turning the head to breathe.
  • Swimming skills: Kicking legs, arm movements, floating and moving through water.
