The Autism News | English Sandy Huffaker for The New York Times DELAND — Swimming at the YMCA is good for all children, but executives at local Easter Seals and YMCA organizations believe it’s especially good for youngsters with autism. On Monday, sessions will open to beginning swimmers who need specialized attention. Lynn Sinnott, president of Easter Seals Volusia and Flagler Counties, says instructors at the DeLand and Port Orange Family YMCAs are now equipped with the adaptive tools and skills to teach youngsters with autism who are 3 to 12 years old.
