SCUBA WITH AUTISM IN IRELAND Training, Experiences and a Spirit of cooperation

Scuba with Autism in Ireland

Objective

Scuba diving is an enjoyable activity for millions of divers, and many of the experiences we have underwater can only be described as magnificent, inspiring, and exhilarating. For one group of people - kids and adults struggling with autism - the experience of scuba diving can be life-changing.

When researchers at Midwestern University surveyed kids and adults with autism spectrum disorders, they found a common theme among them – they each found sensory freedom while under the water, where visual and auditory distractions are minimized. The effect was calming, and for someone with autism, it’s a welcome feeling.

Dive Academy 

The Try Dive will be delivered by Dive Academy Scuba Diving School, and the majority of the itinerary will be delivered at Dive Academy premises. 

Course Content

"Intro to Scuba Diving" lessons (an hour) including how to use basic scuba equipment, safety skills, some additional diving skills and the opportunity to try it out & breath underwater in the swimming pool. Repeat as often as you like until you are comfortable using scuba gear underwater.
