This event is done by appointment to remain sensory sensitive for the individuals, families and caregivers we serve.
Survival Swim Lessons (contracted through the Ocala Recreation & Parks when available) Since individuals with autism are drawn to bodies of water, OaSN believes it is important that individuals with autism have the survival skills necessary to survive a fall into a body of water when eloping (running or wandering). We are committed to offering sponsored swim lessons when they are available in our community.
