Students, faculty pool efforts to help disabled children
Thursday, September 28, 2006
Disabled children who headed for the pool this summer learned to swim with the help of faculty members and students in the SCSU Department of Health, Physical Education, Recreation and Sport Science.
SCSU, which has been teaching aquatics adapted for the disabled since the 1970s, offers the program every summer for children ages 3 to 16. The program is a free service to the community.
Classes are taught by faculty members with the assistance of students in physical education. This year they taught 24 sessions at the Halenbeck Hall Pool.
