Talking and Swimming! Light Tech Swimming Boards

Thanks to Sarah for sharing this swimming board she made for her daughter Hannah.  The language for swimming is laminated and added to a floatboard / kickboard.

We made swimming boards about 30 years ago at the Irene Wortham Center in Asheville, North Carolina when we were doing the Halliwick adapted swimming program.  http://halliwick.org/

So many students that I work with have better range of motion, better motor control, and more control over vocalizations in the water.  Also it's important and just great fun for students to have better communication while swimming!
