My Y Story...

Charlie

The swimming pool inside the East Side YMCA is one of five-year old Charlie’s favorite places. Like many autistic children, he is drawn to the water, and that’s a scary thought for us. Once a week, Charlie has his own private swim lesson through Full Circle, a program designed for 3-14 year olds on the autism spectrum or with other sensory issues. The staff designed a plan to meet Charlie’s significant needs, and while he has many challenges, swimming has become a strength. Unlike most therapy sessions, the program provides an outlet for children and their families in a place they feel safe. It’s something we know can’t be taken for granted. Our son may not be able to say thank you but we can. Thank you for providing Charlie and other autistic children with a supportive positive environment. - The Driedric Family
