Sensory Swim Hour
Aura Youghal are delighted to bring you it’s first ever ‘Sensory Swim Hour’.
The Sensory Swim Hour will take place on Monday, July 8th from 3.00pm to 4.00pm in Aura Youghal Leisure Centre.
The aim of the session is to accomodate children who struggle with noises normally associated with swimming pools. On the day we will make some of the following changes to make the experience as enjoyable as possible:
- Closed session to the general public
- Hand Dryers in changing rooms turned off
- No announcements made
- TV Screens turned off
- No music
- Whistles not used
- Staff & Customer awareness
Staff will carry out a sensory check before the session begins and we have created the following visual board for parents to use to help make create a fun adventure.
We invite all local groups to attend on the day and to offer feedback to help us develop the session further.
