What People Say About Deaf-Friendly Swimming Lessons

"I really enjoyed helping with this event and would definitely do it again. The children really were a pleasure to be with. I felt I could help children and they appreciated me being there to reinforce instructions from the swimming teacher. The instructors were keen to pick up any signing they could to help inform future lessons with the children. I myself had lots of feed back from parents, they were so pleased to be given the opportunity of swimming lessons for the children, it was definitely a huge success."

"Can I please say how much of a success I thought this evening's class was. Christian has struggled in the past with lessons with concentration and the way the young gentleman kept their attention I thought was brilliant. To see all the children enjoying the lessons in a nice relaxed atmosphere was brilliant whilst still communicating with the assistants. (A very happy mom with an even happier son)”
