Learning can take place in so many different environments, not just in a classroom. At MacIntyre School, our team are always on the lookout for exciting and inspiring ways to engage the students, turning to many of the student's favourite place to learn... MacIntyre School's hydrotherapy pool.
Speaking how the facilities, Louise, a teacher at MacIntyre School said:
"We are very fortunate to have our own hydro pool onsite, which offers a wonderful sensory experience for our students at MacIntyre School and students from the MacIntyre No Limits programme on a weekly basis."
"You don’t even need words to explain how engaged and communicative the students are when they are relaxed and immersed in the warm water."
The onsite pool even offers students the opportunity to develop their communication, confidence, social and play skills in a safe space.
Students also have access to the local pool in the community, supporting them to become confident swimmers and develop skills including travelling, using money to pay and being part of the community.
