Therapists and medical professionals have long recognized the value of aquatic training therapy, which is used as a part of physical, occupational and speech therapy programs. The unique qualities that water offers make water the ideal place for children with all levels of disability impairments. Its properties of decreasing impact while promoting movement allow a variety of children to benefit from this program. The buoyancy of the water assists with exercise and supports children so that they can stand and walk. Water, and the aquatic therapy equipment used, also offers resistance to fast movements, which makes strengthening exercises fun! Coordination and aerobic activities can also be performed in the pool.
