‘Halliwick Swimming for Disabled People’
Halliwick Swimming for Disabled People is an important reference book for anyone who wishes to teach swimming. Its special emphasis is on instruction regardless of a swimmer’s level of disability as it stresses ability in the water rather than disability on dry land.
Swimming is an enjoyable form of exercise for everyone – that is the starting point for the Halliwick Concept explained here. Using this concept instructors can encourage their swimmers to experience the enormous sense of satisfaction and freedom that stems from a greater independence in the water.
