Swimming classes for children with additional support needs has been introduced across Aberdeenshire.
The swimming sessions, specifically for children with additional support needs (ASN), have been running at swimming pools in Turriff and Stonehaven and have proved to be popular with young people, parents and carers.
Swim instructors and pool staff noticed there was a demand for one-to-one or two-to-one lessons. These classes provide the chance for group learning in a quieter environment.
The classes have so far received positive feedback and one parent said: “Had it not been for these classes, our kids simply would not have had the opportunity to learn to swim.”
Those interested in swimming lessons, catering for additional support needs, are encouraged to contact your local Live Life Aberdeenshire swimming pool.
