Look for programs with qualified instructors who teach essential skills and water safety training. Depending on your child’s age and abilities, you may want to start with mommy-and-me or daddy-and-me classes that have parents participate with their kids. Designed for children under age 4, these parent + toddler classes are usually designed to build swim readiness.

The law says all children under 12 must wear a life jacket while boating, and for good reason - studies show that potentially half of all boating deaths might have been prevented with the use of life jackets. Also, life jackets only work well when they are worn correctly.

Make sure the life jacket is the right size.
Follow the manufacturer’s instructions - all straps should be fastened, and the life jacket should not be loose.
Anytime you are on a boat, adults should set a good example and wear a life jacket, too.

Water Safety Tips:
4.Get water safety training. If possible, choose a Water Watcher who has water safety training and knows CPR.
5.Check the water first. If a child is missing, look in the water first.
6.Have a phone nearby. While the Water Watcher shouldn’t be on their phone, keep a phone nearby in case of emergencies.
7.Never leave the post. The Water Watcher must stay at their post until they are replaced by another watcher.

Autism and Swimming
Water safety is especially critical for children and adults with autism, as many individuals on the spectrum are drawn to water, some of whom are unable to understand the dangers associated with it. Tragically, the leading cause of death among people with autism that wandering is drowning

Water Toys:
Never use water toys to protect weak swimmers - this includes water wings, noodles, floaties, or inner tubes. Air-filled or foam toys are not safety devices and are not designed to keep swimmers safe. U.S. Coast Guard-approved life jackets are the only water safety devices that are certified to protect children.

Water Safety Tip:
Always Choose a Water Watcher
1.Stay focused. There’s no room for multi-tasking. The Water Watcher should not be distracted by a book, phone, or other adults.
2.Make sure the watcher is an adult. Older children should never have the responsibility of being the Water Watcher.
3.Pay special attention to new swimmers. If there are new swimmers or non-swimmers, the Water Watcher should be within arm’s reach of them.
