Beit Issie Shapiro is proud to be launching its Halliwick Program for JCCs, with its first Halliwick Course in the United States. This 5-day course will enable participants to upgrade the aquatic services provided to their community, especially to those with disabilities.
The Halliwick Concept is a unique and innovative approach to teaching all people, in particular those with physical and/or learning disabilities, to participate in water activities, to move independently in water, and to swim. It is an amazing tool for teaching independence and confidence in the water, swimming or therapy. Due to its great flexibility, it enables specific adjustment to each swimmer according to his / her abilities and to individual or group treatments or lessons.
The course is intended for swimming instructors who want to expand their understanding and knowledge in adaptation of teaching skills, for therapists who want to acquire additional therapeutic tools, and for people who have no previous background in the field of treatment or water, but are interested in taking part in this activity.
