The classroom workshop is comprised of discussions, video presentations, case studies, and interactive activities. The classroom workshop will provide participants with information on various disabilities, awareness and precautions associated with those disabilities, as well as instructional strategies and effective parent communication. Participants in the Special Abilities workshop will learn about some of the most common disabilities experienced in the aquatics industry, including Autism Spectrum Disorder. The interactive activities throughout the course will allow participants to learn from each other and gain a broader perspective on teaching individuals with special abilities. The Special Abilities Course is designed to provide a wide array of information so that participants have a solid foundation on which they can develop a special abilities program for their swim school or further develop their own individual teaching skills.
