Looking for swim lessons/hydrotherapy for young son with CP

Hi everyone, I hope you’re all good.

My wife and I were looking for swim lessons and/or hydrotherapy for our 3 year old son who has spastic diplegic cerebral palsy. He loves swimming and water play (even bath time), and we want to help his development by taking him to sessions so he can exercise and gain confidence while having fun (win-win). 

Any recommendations are welcome. We live in the Birmingham area near to the Solihull border. 

Thank you in advance,

Stuart

    Hi Stuart, have you asked the local council if they can recommend anywhere?
    Be extra nice to new members.

    Hello @SKMills

    How are you today? 

    Thanks for posting, some sort of swimming activity sounds like a great idea. As you saym mixing in development with fun is the perfect combination. I would also advise speaking with your local council to see what they can suggest, they have the benefit of knowing your area.
