Recently we have found that there are many parents letting us know of medical and learning conditions that their children have been diagnosed with. We are so thankful for the extra information and insight that this provides us with as it means that we can inform our teachers and make adjustments when needed.
You may not have even thought that there could be a connection between your child’s condition and their performance in class. A student with Dyslexia for example may need the delivery of instructions to be altered. A student with Anxiety may benefit from changing the time of their lesson to best suit them.
Every time we are made aware of these conditions, our Supervisors work closely with your child’s teachers and coaches to ensure that not only are they aware, but there is also a plan in place, and we can provide the appropriate care when required. For example, a child with Asthma who asks for a rest because they are getting puffed out, is a very different scenario from a child who is not Asthmatic that asks for a rest.
We invite you to come and speak to a Supervisor (in the red shirts) to ensure that your child is receiving the best possible swimming experience. There are so many ways that we are able to maximise your experience with us, and we would love to be able to work together to achieve this. If you believe you have already informed us, please check!
