"Just wanted to say THANKS! for the best class I have ever attended... Aquatic Therapy for the Medically Fragile Child has given me so many new and fun ways to help my kiddos:) Kiki did a great job even with power outages. I will certainly keep future ATU courses high on my radar (like the pediatric sensory course for 2011??? hint-hint:)"

Read research supporting laboring (pdf) in water.
