Thus, was born Autism Swim (AS), a multi-disciplinary program using Behavioural Specialists, Occupational Therapists and Swimming Teachers to right the alarming wrongs of water safety for people with ASD. "I didn’t sit down and decide to start a business, meticulously planning how to go about this” Ms Gleeson, the company's Clinical Director, says. "I just leapt into action and the rest merely followed. I worked with a wonderful young man named Paddy in trialling our methodologies and principles. As a result, I was able to bring together a wonderful, clinical team to design training, resources and support packages so that this information could be really accessible for people far and wide."
