We Are Growing!
CEO Picture 
Interest in aquatic therapy, and ARN in general, has really taken off in recent months. To that end, we have hired a CEO, Lee Salzman, to help us expand our magazine, Internet and seminar offerings, as well as chart new strategic opportunities.

Lee is a business development expert who will be bringing 15 years of Fortune 500 consulting experience to our humble enterprise. Even better? He's my husband. As you hear more from him in the coming weeks, I hope you will join me in welcoming him as he advances our aquatic therapy cause to exciting new territory.

Join the Autism Workgroup
Autistic Child 
Your 2-year old patient with autism is afraid of getting his hair wet and treats every bath-time as his own private hell. What do you do? Well, you log onto the Aquaticnet Social Network and sign up for the Autism Work Group to find fabulous ideas for incorporating transitions into pool time. For instance, learn what one recreational therapist suggests doing with your umbrella in the shower-stall.
  Developing a Rash?
Itching DogAquatic therapists and instructors at an elevated risk 
Who spends more time in the therapy pool than you? The same disinfectant chemicals which are used to prevent disease outbreak can flare up a nasty rash in aquatic staffers.
Preparing Your Pool for the Worst
Tropical storms on the East Coast, hurricanes in the Gulf, floods in the Midwest. With the recent spate of natural disasters this year, can you safely say it can't happen to you anymore? We've found this checklist for outdoor pools to give you some ideas on what you should be doing.
