These are just some examples, and they are not necessarily endorsed by Positively Autism. I cannot comment on the quality of any of these programs. Please make sure to thoroughly investigate any program before enrolling your child. If a program in your area isn't listed, it doesn't mean that there isn't one in your area. I'd recommend doing an online search for "autism swim lessons YOUR CITY."
Swim Lessons University also offers a DVD on teaching swimming to children with autism. Again, I can't comment on the quality of the DVD, but you can find it here: http://www.swimlessonsuniversity.com/Teaching-Children-with-Autism-Spectrum-Disorder-DVD-pluTEACHING-CHILDREN-WITH-ASD.html
Another recommended resource is this Autism and Water Safety booklet. It has lots of tips and suggestions for keeping your child safe.
Also, here's a link to a swimming pool safety rules story that I wrote years ago. I was pretty limited on the clip art I had at the time, so some of the pictures aren't the best. :) However, you may still find it helpful. You can find it on our "Health and Safety" page.
