Autisme Montréal has been offering swimming lessons and aquatic activities for people who have autism or and ASD for many years now. We are lucky to have a wonderful and qualified team of employees, three instructors, two lifeguards and a class supervisor who help your children learn new skills in the water.
The classes are held Friday nights from 6PM to 8PM, at the Joseph-Charbonneau pool. The participants are separated into two groups, and each group receives a personal lesson every other week. However, every participant can go to the pool every week for an open swim.
Every participant must be accompanied in the pool by an adult at all times, for the lesson or the open swim. They are also under the watchful eyes of the lifeguards.
$225/year for 15 individualized sessions and 15 open swim sessions From October 7 to December 2, 2016 and January 6 to June 2, 2017, inclusively (with the exception of Friday April 14, 2017).
