The Autism Society of Iowa SPLASH for Autism program allows individuals with autism, their families and caregivers the opportunity to swim without many of the distractions of a typical swimming environment, such as whistles, music and excessive noise. ALL individuals with autism and their families/caregivers are invited to swim FREE of CHARGE! All children must be accompanied by an adult.
To expand the reach of our SPLASH for Autism program throughout 2020, The Autism Society of Iowa has received a $4843.00 grant from Variety – The Children’s Charity.
The Variety grant will be used to rent pools to provide a safe, sensory friendly pool event for those with autism who enjoy water, along with their families and care givers, but who cannot attend a public pool when it is open to the public.
Variety, the Children’s Charity is dedicated to improving the lives of children who are at-risk, underprivileged, critically ill or living with special needs. Grant funding is provided to programs and initiatives that directly impact the well-being of children. For more information on Variety grants and programs please visit varietyiowa.com.
