Everyone who told me about Ailene Tisser, a therapist and program founder of Swim Angelfish, was very passionate about her. As soon as I met her I could see why. The program offers adaptive swim programs for children with special needs ranging from autism to anxiety, trauma and sensory differences.
I was fortunate enough to be invited to a free program where Ailene gave each child individualized OT support, while also teaching parents what to do with their kids in the water.
One of the best parts of the program is that young adults who graduated from the program come back volunteer their time to help.
