The CHOP Physical Therapy Department is offering a new aquatics program for children with developmental delay who are ages 2 – 5 and are learning to walk.
Aquatic therapy is a fun and effective tool to help children work on the strength, balance and coordination required to walk with greater independence. Groups are a fun way for children to learn from their peers and connect with other families.
Who can participate
To participate in this group, children:
- Should be aged 2 to 5 years old
- Should be able to sit on their own and follow simple directions
- May or may not be able to walk using a walker or other assistive device
A parent or primary caregiver must be able to join us in the pool and help their child.
Every Thursday, from May 23 – June 27, 2019
(May 23 and 30 and June 6, 13, 20 and 27)
12 – 1 p.m.
Check-in begins at 11:45 a.m.
An initial evaluation will be scheduled prior to the first session.
For more information or to register, please email aquaticsPTgroup@email.chop.edu.
Parking will be available in the Wood Parking Garage. Please check in at the first floor registration desk of the Children's Seashore House to register and receive a visitor's badge before heading to the pool.
