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.
