Fundamental concepts such as water familiarisation, safety and participation are taught throughout. This is just another example of how Monash Special Developmental School strives to enrich your child's individual potential.
When working with children with intellectual disabilities including autism spectrum disorder and physical disabilities, the benefits of swimming and hydrotherapy are widely published. Monash SDS acknowledges this and as a result our swimming and hydrotherapy programs form a key part of the curriculum.
Students begin swimming at Early Education and continue through primary school into our senior and pathways years. Our levels span beginner, intermediate and advanced. The program is developed to individually engage the child at their level of ability.
