Katelynn Krause is an Autism Swim Certified Provider, Certified Lifeguard, and Occupational Therapist specializing in autism treatment. She pursued these certifications and developed programming to offer water safety/skill lessons to children, teens, and adults with autism and other special needs in order to meet the growing demand in the community. Resources for water safety and swim lessons for individuals with autism are very limited, even though drowning risks are significantly higher within this population. Katelynn's mission is to decrease drowning rates for individuals with special needs.
September through December, January to June, and June through August. We do occasionally have mid-semester openings.
