Presentation by Cindy Freedman & Ailene Tisser, Swim Angelfish
Originally aired April 20, 2020 

Swim Angelfish creates educational resources for the world’s adaptive swim lessons needs and advocates for the necessity of having specifically trained instructors for this growing population.  For 20 years we have provided both free and paid online training materials for all aspects of adaptive aquatics. The Swim Whisperers® methodology stands above the rest by educating instructors not by disability but by roadblocks and easily integrates with any existing swim curricula.
