AquAbility provides therapeutic aquatic programs for children and adults of all ages who are challenged by a variety of disabilities including: Autism, Blind or Visually Impaired, Cerebral Palsy, Deaf or Hard of Hearing, Developmental Disabilities, Down Syndrome, Limb Loss, Multiple Sclerosis, Muscular Dystrophy, Post Traumatic Stress, Parkinson’s Disease and Spinal Cord Injury.
The goals of AquAbility are to foster physical and cognitive benefits, raise self-esteem, promote lifetime fitness, encourage and cultivate positive social interaction, improve quality of life, and to allow for independence. Aquatic skills and water safety are inherent in our programs, with some participants achieving high-level swimming ability.
AquAbility’s certified staff provide private, 1:1 therapeutic aquatic sessions where we work on physical and cognitive goals, communication skills, large and small motor skills, motor planning, motor sequencing, confidence, independence and water safety skills.
AquAbility Therapeutic Aquatic programs operate year-round, with participants attending weekly private sessions with certified instructors. Most participants stay with us for years!
We welcome Veterans with disabilities to take advantage of our program and we collaborate with the Idaho Veterans Administration for special events.
AquAbility also offers opportunities for competition, clinics and other events for participants.
AquAbility strives to provide all people with disabilities access to our programs. Contact us for scholarship inquiries.
