Special Needs Swimming Lessons

Empowering Children of All Abilities


At Baby Otter Swim School, we believe that every child, regardless of their abilities, deserves the opportunity to learn how to swim and stay safe in the water. Our mission is to end childhood drownings, starting in Florida and extending nationwide through our franchising program. We are proud to share the success stories of thirteen special needs kids who have graduated from our program after just five 30-minute lessons. In collaboration with our ambassadors, Baseball Hall of Famer Andre Dawson and Gold Medal Special Olympian Layla Crehan, we are dedicated to helping as many autistic and learning-disabled children as possible learn how to survive a fall in the water.


The Baby Otter Swim Program:


Our renowned Baby Otter Swim School offers a comprehensive swimming program that caters to children of any age, including those with special needs. Central to our program is the Turn, Kick, Reach® method, a simple yet effective approach that teaches young children how to react appropriately if they find themselves in deep water. This method emphasizes the essential skills of turning, kicking, and reaching for safety.

Tailored Lessons for Busy Schedules:


Understanding the challenges faced by parents with busy schedules, we have designed our program to be efficient and effective. Our proprietary Turn, Kick, Reach® program can teach anyone, regardless of age or ability, how to swim in just five 30-minute lessons. This condensed format allows children to grasp the fundamentals of swimming and water safety within a short timeframe, providing them with essential life-saving skills.


Success with Special Needs Children:


Baby Otter Swim School takes great pride in its success in teaching swimming skills to children with various challenges, including those who are learning disabled, autistic, or have other special needs. We maintain a high level of expertise and understanding when working with these children, ensuring a supportive and inclusive learning environment. Through our specialized approach and individualized attention, we empower special needs children to become confident swimmers, unlocking their potential in the water.
