Swim Lessons Help Build Speech Skills

Did you know that 8 percent of children in the U.S. have a communication disorder (speech delay, stuttering, swallowing disorders, cluttering, etc.)?

Did you know that speech and hearing have a huge impact on a child’s ability to learn and communicate socially and emotionally?

Did you know that swimming can help children with speech disorders practice therapeutic everyday skills?

Having a speech impairment can be frustrating for a child who feels that their disorder is prohibiting them from making friends, properly communicating their wants and needs, and articulating their thoughts; which can lead to a lack of focus in the home and classroom. For many parents, discouragement settles in when having to accommodate for their child whose disorder is getting in the way of everyday activities.

Here are some simple ways that swim lessons can help build speech skills:
