Special Educations needs resources
Suitable for all including supporting parents with their children development
A perfect tool for any swimming lesson, SwimPix were developed with additional needs in mind. However these are also fabulous for all as a picture says a thousand words.
SwimPix are designed to give a clear picture of a swimming skill or stroke being demonstrated by the teacher or parent. The clarity of the cards make them accessible for non-English speakers and those with hearing difficulties, dyslexia, visual and kinaesthetic swimmers. They provide a versatile, visual aid for storyboarding your swimming lessons.
For wet and dry lessons!
SwimPix can be used in the water, from the side and in the classroom to enhance school swimming and to demonstrate those tricky skills!
