Additional Support Needs
Aquatics Aberdeen provides a comprehensive range of opportunities across the city for individuals with additional support needs (ASN) and their families. These include swimming lessons and relaxed family sessions, offering a quiet, safe environment with adapted equipment, available at an affordable price.
PASN Classes – For school-aged children, these pre-ASN level classes include a parent in the water, helping children to learn skills more quickly. Parents will support their child and work with the teaching staff to set a training programme for their child. On completion, the child can move to ASN1, with basic swimming skills and confidence.
ASN Swimming Lessons – various levels.
One to Ones – 30 minute individual swimming lessons prioritising ASN swimmers and working to support individuals towards mainstream participation wherever possible. Booked in blocks of six or ten weeks.
Deaf Swimming Lessons – beginners and improvers. The swimming teacher is trained in sign language.
Transition Squad – for swimmers 8–16 years with a physical or sensory impairment, who can swim a minimum of 25 metres.
