Drowning is the number one cause of accidental
death for children with autism.
Empowering your child with the
skills, knowledge and confidence to be safe around
the water is our number one priority. At Pediatric
Aquatic Therapy, we provide water acquisition and
safety skills with an introduction to the aquatic environment
through social stories, visual and
physical prompts, and adapted water activities.
We make learning safe and fun by individually designed activities in a safe and comfortable aquatic environment.

- Enhanced Social Skills and Self-Confidence
With over 700 miles of beach fun in our home state, enjoying a safe day at the beach is imperative for family fun. From splashing around in the shallow pools to swimming to the sandbar together, a day at the beach can be a rewarding family experience.
Pediatric Aquatic Therapy of the Suncoast was a proud recipient of scholarship funds for ASD children. Children who demonstrated financial need received swimming instruction . We had a fun, successful summer in the pool!
