My name is Joanne and I’m a mum of 3 ASD children.
I’m also autistic.
Water is our therapy which is why I re-trained to become a swimming teacher.

I specifically offer open water swimming/teaching to help our children be more aware of the hazzards/dangers that are at lakes/loughs and the beach .
Pool instruction can be arranged too.
I also ensure they have the necessary skills to save themselves incase of accidents due to poor personal safety awareness.
Most importantly we have fun and go at the learner’s pace.

I work all around mid-ulster area
