While many parents of children with autism may experience helplessness or discouragement, driving coach Bo taught two sons with autism to dive in order to help children with autism develop their potentials, deal with stresses more effectively and prepare them to go further in the future.
Bo and his wife have two sons and both sons are diagnosed with mild autism and medium-mild autism respectively, showing difficulties in communicating with others and even having repetitive behaviors. Apart from actively seeking a variety of treatments and choosing the suitable school, Bo, a diving coach, believes that the underwater world can allow children to learn more relaxingly without the influence of overwhelming environmental stimulus. Though two sons were resistant to wearing swimming goggles due to the fear of restraint and visual obstruction, father came up with the idea of starting with children’s beloved dinosaur toy and asking them to find a way to pick it up from the pool. Father has also conceived various underwater games to train the children to complete the increasingly difficult tasks under water pressure, thus gradually cultivating the interest for diving and enhancing the mastered skills.
Through diving, the balance, emotional control and attention of two sons have been improved and they also learn to follow instructions, which made the daily communication much easier. And Bo has founded a non-profit organization 2 years ago to provide diving training for people with autism and it has helped nearly 50 autistic children and youths. Children with autism face different obstacles and difficulties in the areas of social, language and behaviors. In addition to discovering their strengths, encouraging them to solve problems independently and integrate into society, seeking professional behavioral therapy can further improve behavioral problems more effectively. a mile to a smile!
