Listening sessions for children with complex needs

underwater and in the classroom.

Underwater sound and aided movement therapy sessions at hydrotherapy pools for children with complex and special needs providing educational and emotional benefits as well as being physically therapeutic.

These sessions would require a preliminary briefing meeting with the childrens’ teaching and care staff. Working closely with the local staff we develop bespoke sound sessions that correspond with the current curriculum and the needs of the children. The hydrotherapy sessions are expanded from to include educational and emotional benefits as well as being physically therapeutic.
