  *     Our Aquatic Therapy Programming is conducted in private 1:1 45 minute sessions. We provide  1:1 standardized assessments on land and in the pool, a parent or caretaker assessment, detailed list of goals and a treatment plan based on the comprehensive evaluation of all assessments, followed by daily documentation of progress.  
*      A wide variety of aquatic equipment and therapeutic techniques are used to work with the natural dynamics of the water to assist clients with the motor planning that is involved in increasing muscle and tone development, exercise, safety, rehabilitation, swimming, strengthening, and overall recreation satisfaction. 

*      Sample goals of this program are to increase muscle tone, strength, balance, coordination, range of motion, flexibility, spatial awareness, increase cardiovascular function, master a variety of swimming skills, safety in and around water, and decrease  anxiety, stress, and fear of water.   All goals will be determined individually and specific treatment plans will be developed.
