The Benefits of Swimming will Surprise You

If you’ve ever tried meditating yourself, you know how difficult it is to just sit still and shut off the mind's chatter. Fortunately, there's good news - you don’t have to sit still to receive a meditation like effect, you just need to swim!

One of the first noticeable effects of swimming is its ability to calm the mind. It’s almost unbelievable how effective it can be at easing your stresses and anxiety. We highly recommended this guide by Autism Parenting to learn more about how swimming can be an effective tool to guide your autistic child through mental development.

Not every parent is emotionally equipped and physically prepared to patiently teach their children to swim, and that's okay! Search your local community for lessons and private instruction. Some home pool maintenance companies even sponsor or host community events to promote and teach safe swimming. We are building a state by state directory of resources, if you know any such companies or organizations send them to us.
