Situation

Ohel Sarah is determined to provide an appropriate and stimulating framework of recreation to those disabled children who are deprived from participating in many other sport and leisure activities

Solution

In the pool, having learnt too swim the physically disabled child feels confident liberated to use their limbs unencumbered giving them a sense of freedom that they do not experience out of the water. Additionally for the mentally disabled child research indicates that when other therapies have failed, swimming enhances potential and improves functioning levels.
