Autism Awareness Month – Celebrating Two Autism Swim Seasons in Port Macquarie
Early Connections Port Macquarie / Hastings Occupational Therapist Jaye Cherry is your local Autism Swim Instructor.
The program has run in Port Macquarie for 2 years now. Here’s some feedback on the program from local families this summer:
“Teal (age 7) loves his aquatic therapy with Jaye .. it has definitely helped with coordinating his breath and movement and his confidence in the water.”
“Lola (age 7) absolutely loved swimming lessons with Jaye. We found Jaye to be patient, caring and made the experience fun. She had a unique approach to teaching which was very well received by Lola. We would certainly like to participate in future sessions.”
“It enlightened him and improved his co-ordination. I’m very proud of Christopher and Jaye. Jaye’s skills and activities are amazing. It has built his confidence and strength in being in the water.”
Well done to all our children who have taken part in Autism Swim and thanks to Jaye for bringing the program to Port Macquarie.
