Angelfish Therapy / Swim Whisperers
Angelfish Therapy's team of aquatic therapists -- with over 20 years experience -- work together to
use the unique properties of water to create fun and motivating therapy for children.  In private, semi-
private, and group classes, we treat such key issues as core strength, endurance, motor planning, and
sensory processing.  Our "Swim Whisperers" training program -- designed for swim instructors and
swim school directors -- identifies the obstacles faced by children with sensory or motor issues
learning to swim, and teaches you the innovative, therapy-based techniques needed to quickly turn
them into confident and independent swimmers. 

Want to add Swim Whisperers techniques to your swim lessons?
