Early in 2014, we began offering aquatic therapy to all students attending the school program at the FEROLETO Children’s Development Center in Trumbull.
Aquatic therapy uses the principles of buoyancy which makes exercise easier for individuals with disabilities. It provides benefits to the whole body and will help us teach new skills in water that will translate to land, improving balance, strength, head control and even breathing to encourage better communication.
The pool features an underwater treadmill, resistance jets, and a subfloor with holes that allows for individuals to be rolled into the water in a wheelchair and then lowered to the desired depth needed for each individual’s therapy, up to six feet.
