Aquatic therapy can help children achieve improved range of motion and physical strength. This form of therapy provides a fun outlet while children work on strengthening their muscles, balance, and coordination. Aquatic therapy can also help with pain management and teach them proper breath control.
Aquatic therapy can help children work on sensory integration and develop their gross motor and motor planning skills. Because aquatic therapy channels a child’s physical strength and range of motion, it can help delayed or disabled children make progress to their milestones, such as crawling or walking.
Swimming while undergoing speech therapy is a great way to motivate and boost a child’s confidence. While playing in the pool, children can practice their communication and language skills. Aquatic therapy is also a great way to encourage children to socialize and face some of their anxieties and insecurities attributed to their speech problems.
