Product Description
With appropriate supervision, affordable adapted aquatics equipment can be used to facilitate students’ learning of specific aquatics skills as well as those helpful for improving their activities of daily living. For example, (1) the forward overhand arm motion needed to throw a ball for an aquatics target game is similar to the arm motion needed for the crawl/freestyle stroke. Also (2), the buoyancy and resistance of just the water itself, can facilitate the skill of walking to help students walk more independently on land. (3) Blowing games, such as blowing colorful ping-pong balls across the waters’ surface, facilitate crucial aquatics breath control skills. (4) Underwater, breath-holding skills are enhanced by practice, and students are especially motivated to do so by offering them enticing toys to reach for that have sunk to the pool bottom. Specific examples of how adapted aquatics equipment can help facilitate the learning of aquatics skills are presented in this guide. Aquatics skills addressed are: Water entry/exit skills, Water exploration/breath control skills, Gross motor (walking, etc.,) balance skills, fitness in water, Floating skills and changing positions (e.g., horizontal to vertical; prone to supine, etc.), Propulsion skills (kicking skills and arm strokes), and Rescue skills. 32 pgs. 2008.
