We’re so very excited to introduce our new online swimming course – Inclusive Swimming for Deaf and Hard of Hearing Children!
This project has been in the making for quite a while now and we’re glad we now get to share it with you all. As parents, we know it's tough to see our deaf and hard of hearing children struggle with extra-curricular activities. Especially when the purpose is for them to learn important skills such as swimming and water safety. This is why, when parents raised these concerns with us after the cancellation of swimming lessons due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we worked with Signpedia to develop an amazing course to make swimming lessons more accessible and inclusive.
This self paced course is available free of charge to swim teachers, families, and other members of the community. We’re very proud that there is an Auslan translated version available for Auslan users.
