Private swim lessons for autistic children

I have 2 daughters who have high functioning autism age 10&6 and they are very water sensitive and cannot dunk their heads under water. Even washing hair is a struggle! Anyone have recommendations for a sensory sensitive swim instructor?

Albany Pool offers “Adapted Swim Lessons” that are specially geared to toward meeting individual needs.

You can try SNAPkids (Special Needs Aquatic Program) in Berkeley as they work with children with special needs.  They often have a waiting list, but it's worth checking. snapkids.org. Good luck.
