Aquatic therapy for speech therapist
"I'd like to learn new ideas for taking speech into the pool. But there's never enough interest to get a class going."

We did it. We took the plunge!

ATU's 1st ever "Aquatic Therapy for the Speech Therapist" seminar is May 14-15th.
  • Take our positional lab and learn cool Watsu® saddle positions for speech.
  • Learn aquatic-based oral-motor exercises.
  • Watch how augmented communication plays out in water.
  • Join the round-table discussion on the future of aquatic speech therapy.
It'll be ground-breaking territory. Think 1990's for aquatic PT...
